ALL starting around the same time. (a little coincidental)
I agree with a previous commentator that you're leaving a little thing called WORLD WAR II out of the timeline. That might have had a little bit to
do with all the things you're talking about, from lots of new experimental aircraft being flown around, to a reorganization of armed forces to deal
with the new threats, and so on.
Just like a living organism, technology evolves rapidly under stress (and a massive influx of money). With huge thanks going to the continued warfare
of the 20th Century, we went from a pastoral, agricultural society in 1900 to a high-tech, post industrial society in 2000. That's a huge change,
and most of it had to do with technological advances pushed ahead by war.
We didn't need alien invaders to get us off and running technologically in the 20th Century. We just needed the Nazis and the Communists.
