Transitions in Aviation
Sir Frank Whittle
Inventor of the Turbojet Engine
1907 - 1996
Sir Frank Whittle, a British Pilot, born in Coventry
designed and patented the first turbojet engine in 1930.
Millennium Place, Coventry
This statute of Sir Frank Whittle was unveiled in Coventry
on what would have been the 100th birthday
of this great inventor from Coventry.
Above the statute is the 'Whittle Arch' -
described as a twin-arch tubular structure.
Below you can see more of the Whittle Arch.
The blue structure is a walkway, called 'The Glass Bridge'.
You can just make out the statute in front of the bus.
There is plenty of construction going on in Coventry too.
More university student accommodation, I am told.
