[Video] Me 262: Aircraft of the New Era

World War 2 pushed piston engine aircraft to their absolute limit, with engineers all around the world coming up with ingenious solutions to make them better in every conceivable way. By the end of the war, though, piston planes ran into a wall they couldn’t break through: at that point, laws of physics prevented them from being optimized any further. In order to get better results, you needed aircraft of a completely new type. That’s right: today we’re talking about the ways you can get the most out of the first ever operational jets of the Messerschmitt 262 family!

Technicly inaccurate, Pistons did improve even when these jets were in service. For example the seafury and spitfire mk 24 were late '45 while meteor mk3 was in service. Continued to be used and optimised though the 50s.
