The plane that changed the whole game
World War II was coming to an end when the Messerschmitt Me 262 first engaged into combat, and it changed the whole game. It was the first jet powered combat plane in history, and although it didn't really change the outcome of the Great War, it definitely marked a turning point in air combat.
