An Introduction to Jet Engines

Top of page

A vivid, realistic view of the inside of a jet engine. Animated drawings in full colour show simply and clearly how a jet engine develops thrust. Both centrifugal and axial flow engines are illustrated. Although designed for the instruction of air force ground technicians, the subject and style of the film is so simple and inherently dramatic that it will please a wide variety of audiences. Released as a public service by the Royal Canadian Air Force.

1959, 12 min 55 s
