Last spring, two University of Virginia engineering students posted a YouTube video demonstrating their model of a 3D-printed plastic turbofan plane engine. Their novel application of the technology caught the eye of bigwigs at the MITRE Corporation, a defense contractor based in McLean, Virginia. The company passed the video along the School of Engineering and Applied Science, which was looking for a couple of summer interns to work on a secretive 3D printing project. Responding the call, Steven Easter, one of the students in the video, stepped up to the challenge, bringing with him his brother and lab partner, Jonathan Turman. They ended up creating a 3D-printed plane that was test flown at Milton Airfield near Keswick in September.
