The Gloster E.28/39, was the first British jet-engined aircraft and first flew in 1941. It was the third jet to fly after the German Heinkel He 178 (1939) and the Italian Caproni Campini N.1 motorjet (1940). Only two prototypes were built and one was lost due to improper flight control maintenance. Despite the failure, the E.28/39 was considered to be a success.
