Excerpt: The Coand -1910, designed by Romanian inventor Henri Coand, was the first full-size attempt at a jet aircraft. Built as a sesquiplane, it featured an experimental aircraft engine which Coand called the "turbo-propulseur," a centrifugal compressor propulsion system with a multi-bladed rotary fan situated in a duct and driven by a conventional piston engine. The unconventional aircraft attracted attention at the Second International Aeronautical Exhibition in Paris in October 1910, being the only exhibit without a propeller. Coand used a similar mechanism to drive a snow sled, but did not develop it further for aircraft. Decades later, after the practical demonstration of motorjets and turbojets, Coand asserted that his turbo-propulseur was the first motorjet engine complete with fuel combustion in the air stream. He also said that he had made a single brief flight in December 1910, crashing just after take-off, the aircraft destroyed by fire. Two aviation historians countered Coand 's version of events, saying there was no proof that the engine had combustion in the air stream, and no proof that the aircraft ever flew. In 2010, based on Coand 's 1910 jet experiments, the centennial of the jet aircraft was celebrated in Romania. A special coin and stamp were issued, and a working replica of the aircraft is under construction. At the European Parliament, an exhibition commemorated the building and testing of the Coand -1910. Coand was interested in achieving reactive propelled flight as early as 1905, conducting tests in Bucharest of rockets from the Romanian Army arsenal attached to model aircraft. In secret, at Spandau in G...
