As I look into the early history of jet powered flight, I’m finding some interesting creations. Right now I’m bidding on EBay for a model of a Ryan XFR-1 ‘Fireball’, which was a dual powered plane- prop at the front, jet at the back- commissioned by the US Navy.

More info, and other dual power US planes- Convair XP-81, Grumman XTB3F-1 “Guardian”, Curtiss XF-15 C-1.

This page has a comprehensive list of jets designed and built during the war.
