Jet engines are massive engines that are powered by the engine's own fart! Their farts are extremely hot and can incinerate you. The farts are also capable to blow down houses and cars. Imagine Big Bad Wolf with a fart like that: the three little pigs' houses won't stand a chance......
What the heck are they?
Jet engines are EXTREMELY dangerous, noisy, fuel guzzling engines that CAN explode; they are NOT reccomended for children under 12 months. In some extreme cases, somebody's head can get sucked in and both the engine and the head can a splode.
Extremely noisy and guzzles galleons of fuel: like the ones on the boeing 707-120 and the de Havilland Comet, which has the nasty habit of blowing up and breaking apart. Turbojet engines are rumored to be powered by farting hamsters, so they are banned from airplanes by the RSPCA. they SUCK and can eat away trillions of dollars of cash. Turbojet engines were invented in the second world war by two idiots: Hans von Ohain and Frank Whittle. Their engines worked but the planes that had turbojet engines on didn't. They should be used as flying bombs instead of fighters.....
Oooh! look at the massive fan! Turbofan engines have a fan at the front that cools down the engine and sucks in birds
. It is used in most Boeing and Airbus planes. Turbofan engines are extremely versatile and can be used on your sports car, used as a fan and used as a radiator in these cold winters in Alaska. Turbofan engines were invented in 146 BC by a hamster, the year when the rotten Romans conquered Greece. If Alexander the Great had lived to that day, it would be doom for the Roman empire. He would probably design a massive turbofan engine that would suck the Roman empire right in!
It's a plain old turbojet engine that drives a whizzy little propeller at the front: it is suggested that you stick your head into the front and get it chopped off! (No in fact, it may damage the prop.)most propeller planes now use this kind of engine becaust they whiz around faster than the ordinary piston engines and can chop off more heads at once. Nobody knows who invented the turboprop engine, but archaeologists assume that the Chinese emperor Ching Shi Huang did. A piece of text from the ancient Chinese book I-Ching says that emperor Ching was sitting naked in the bath and drinking green tea (yummy) when he saw some kids outside playing with propellers. He jumped out of his palace (still naked) into the streets of Beijing shouting "Eureka"
