Died, Henri Coanda, Romanian inventor, aerodynamics pioneer, father of modern jet aircraft

Henri Marie Coandă (7 June 1886 - 25 November 1972) was a Romanian inventor, aerodynamics pioneer and the parent of the modern jet aircraft.

With the support of engineer Gustave Eiffel and aeronautical pioneer Paul Painleve, he began experimenting the aerodynamic techniques: one of this experiments was mounting a device on a train running at 90 km/hour so he could analyze the aerodynamic behavior. Another experiment used a wind tunnel with smoke and an aerodynamical balance to profile wings to be used in designing aircraft. This led to the discovery of the aerodynamic effect now known as the Coandă Effect.

In 1910, using the workshop of Joachim Caproni, he designed, built and piloted the first 'thermojet' powered aircraft, known as the Coandă-1910, which he demonstrated publicly at the second International Aeronautic Salon in Paris. The powerplant used a 4-cylinder piston engine to power a compressor, which fed to two burners for thust, instead of using a propeller.
