Default Jet engine in a Cig back in late 70' early 80's

I was talking to someone today and he said he was the first to put a jet engine in a Cig. Says he used to race offshore.
Just wondering if he was pulling my leg.

Thanks

A friend of mine put turbines in a cigarette for some guy in the early eighties, I'd have to ask him how he was or where he was from.

nope, there was one in the 60's, the name of it slips me at the moment. It is seen in the documantary Run Sunward.
