Here is the First America Jet, the Bell P-59 Airacomet and a video complete with Big Band music of the day, showing it's first flight!  There is much information not known by many! The Germans may or may not have been the first to have jet aircraft, but when you watch this video you'll see why the Americans were the best innovators in getting the job done. This is truly a "keeper!"

 

I certainly enjoyed it, and I think you will too!

Interesting short on the development of the US's first fighter Jet. Things sure have changed. "Seat of the pants" to say the least.
