From the Boeing P-26 Peashooter which first flew in 1932 to just 15, yes only 15 years later we see the first F-86 Sabre Jet's flight flight in 1947! Between the Peashooter and the Sabre are the Seversky AT-12 Guardsman (1935) and North American P-51D Mustang (1940). From one of the US Army Air Corp's first mono plane fighters to the dawn of the US Air Force's Jet age in just 15 years!
