“The United States' first jet fighter was the Bell P-59A Airacomet. An experimental version made its first flight on October 1, 1942. Twenty operational P-59As entered service almost a year before World War II ended, as well as thirty improved P-59Bs. They lacked the needed power, plus had high fuel consumption, so they became relegated to the role of a trainer.”
