Eckardt’s ‘Jet Web’ offers a comprehensive exploration of the development history of turbojet engines from the 1920s to the late 1950s. It primarily focuses on the intricate relationships and collaborations between the United Kingdom (& USA), Germany, and Switzerland in this fascinating journey. While the narrative repeats in parts the well-known ‘Whittle vs. Von Ohain Saga’, it mainly sheds new light on unexpected connections and especially, the significant influence of axial compressor technology from the Swiss-German company Brown Boveri & Cie.
The author, a gas turbine engineer, spent a decade meticulously researching and compiling this remarkable account, resulting in a weighty volume with some 250 informative b/w photographs, technical schemes and detailed drawings. This document provides an overview of the book’s content, emphasizing its unique contributions and the target audience it aims to engage.

The first chapter of this wonderful book contained more or less the basic spar for the rest of the stories to follow. A dramatic event that set the title for this book.

This book is a monument for the Learjet and Bill Lear written with an unbelievable amount of technical information supported by visual printed content, drawings of modifications and a great amount of photographs. A must for every LJ pilot or business pilot and their worldwide users. The authors must have worked on this for years because all technicalities are well researched and detailed described. I am sure competition must have acquired this book also. The company delivered the last Learjet in May 2021 having produced 3056 models.

(Nederlands) Het is Jan toch weer gelukt een 5e boekje van deze soort samen te stellen! Hulde! De eerste 4 had ik ook al en ze zijn niet alleen ‘leuk voor de heb’, maar betekenen voor mij persoonlijk veel meer! Ze representeren voor mij inmiddels een heel stuk mooie, maar ook leuke Nederlandse luchtvaartgeschiedenis.
