BMW 018

From PlaneSpottingWorld, for aviation fans everywhere

The BMW 018 (RLM designation BMW 109-018) was an early axial-flow turbojet engine project by BMW AG in Germany.[1]

The 018 design was begun in 1940. It was generally similar to the 003, but had a twelve-stage axial compressor and three-stage turbine, for an output of 3500kg (7000 lb thrust.[2]

No engines were completed before the end of the Second World War.[3]
