The Bell P59 Airacomet was the first Jet-powered aircraft in our military, and it served the Army Air Forces and the Navy (which was unusual, given their competition with each other). It was powered by two General Electric J31-GE-5 turbojets, which was the first working jet engine produced in the United States. General Electric had four facilities in the US, and the engines were mass-produced in all four. I hope this helped!

The first jet plane landed on an aircraft carrier 6 November 1945. The plane was a US Navy Ryan FR-1 Fireball piloted by Ensign Jake C. West, and the carrier was the Casablanca-class escort carrier USS Wake Island.The FR-1 was a 'composite' aircraft with both a forward radial engine and a rear turbojet.

However, Ensign West's FR-1 suffered a radial engine failure on approach; however, he was able to start the turbojet and make a successful emergency landing.
