Yes you read the Title right, this is the Coanda Jet Plane made in 1910. The Coanda cannot go down in History as the first ever Jet plane, probably because it never flew, although according to its creator Henri Coanda he flew it briefly before crashing, but many aviation experts doubt his claims. The engine itself was a ducted Fan so in many respects it could be said that this is the first ever example of a jet plane.
Amazingly Henri Coanda took his idea of the Jet powered plane and came up with the idea of using the same engine to power a Snow Sledge. Also more astonashing is that their is a replica of the aircraft in working condition today, check out the Youtube vid below:
