1. Name the very first pure jet aircraft to operate from an aircraft carrier.

2. Operating from what aircraft carrier?

3. Date of very first aircraft carrier flight of this pure jet aircraft?

4. What was the huge world event on the very day AfTER the quiz event?

Note: Piston-Jets such as the Ryan Fireball do NOT count here.

This may be one of my tougher quizzes- prove me wrong!

Congratulations! Well, all right answers except my info states that first pure jet De Havilland Vampire made its first flight operating from an aircraft carrier H.M.S. Ocean the day before Germany surrendered World War II, on December 3, 1945. This sticks with Aviation.

I consider this quiz done. Now I have to provide another thought provoker.
