The image of fighting jet plane of US?
Look at any of the websites, all show images. The most famous would be the F4 Phantom, the last US jet ace aircraft of the 20th century. And the only combat jet (that saw extensive combat) that was flown by all US branches of service IN COMBAT. The USAF F100 Super Sabre jet is the longest serving "in direct combat" of any US aircraft (1961 to 1971).

Where was the first us navy jet engine made?
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!
What year did the first jet plane land on an aircraft carrier?
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. It was intended to take off and land using the radial engine, as early jet engines were poorly suited to carrier operations. 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.
