The jet engine is one of the new operational technologies developed during the Second World War. As soon as he returned from Buchenwald, Marcel Dassault launched his teams on this path.
The MD-450 Ouragan flew 70 years ago on February 28, 1949. It was the first French jet fighter aircraft to be built in series production after the Second World War. Thanks to him, Dassault was able to test and analyze the aerodynamic and flight quality problems posed by air compressibility.
