As part of the winter lecture series at the Flying Heritage and Combat Armor Museum, regular FHCAM presenter and spacecraft propulsion engineer Dr. Dieter M. Zube will return to the lectern on Thursday, November 14 to deliver his presentation entitled Saug-Drück-Knall-Blas.  
Dr. Zube’s lecture will explore the development of the jet engine in Germany during World War II, how it compared to the parallel and independent effort in Great Britain, and the myriad of design projects that tried to make use of these new propulsion systems.  Most audience members will be familiar with the Messerschmitt Me 262 twin engine jet, or the single engine Heinkel He 162 “Volksjäger” (people’s fighter), but there was also the rather sophisticated Arado 234 reconnaissance bomber and the many, sometimes rather obscure, projects which never left the drawing boards.
If you are interested in World War II history or engineering you won’t want to miss this lecture! Please join us at 7:00pm on Thursday, November 14.
