WORLD'S SMALLEST JET AIRCRAFT
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
What is the world's smallest jet aircraft?
Aircrafts are another mode of
transportation that can prove to be absolutely fascinating. Many books have been
written of the different types and who hasn’t dreamed of just walking around a
cockpit just to steal a glimpse of what pilots do and what the inside of one
looks like. Even if you’ve never dreamed of actually flying aircraft of any
sort, they are still interesting to look at. One of the most interesting is the
Bede BD-5J Microjet, the smallest jet aircraft in the world.
The Bede was built by Juan Jimenez at his home in
San Juan, Puerto Rico. The Bede weighs a total of 162 kilograms, or 358 pounds.
It’s a short 3.7 metres (12 feet) long and its wings have a total span of 5.7
metres (17 feet.) But can something this small fly very fast? Well, yes. The
Bede can fly up to 483 kilometres per hour (or 300 miler per hour.) This tiny
aircraft was built in 2004.
