The unusual Caproni Campini N.1

The unusual Caproni Campini N.1

Bracciano Lazio

Campini called his engine design a thermojet although it's now known as a motorjet
- a conventional piston engine drove a compressor to produce a superfast exhaust
flow which drove the aircraft forwards.

It first flew in August 1940. Two were built, the other went to England for testing.
