because I don't know from wich part of Switzerland I try it in german.
But the sentence doesn't make any sense (doesn't matter which language).

Der Satz ergibt in keiner Sprache einen Sinn
"Im Moment testet er ein ODER ein wirklich schnelles Düsenflugzeug"

google translate (pretty good translation)
Im Moment testet er ein oder eine wirklich schnelle Düsenflugzeug
Au moment où il teste un OU avion à réaction très rapide
Al momento sta testando una o un aereo a reazione veramente veloce

You use 'an' when the next word begins with a vowel: a,e,i,o,u. So in this case it would be 'a really fast jet'.

Oops - I thought it was an error message he didn't understand :-)

Still the "a OR" makes no sense so if you leave that out, everything is ok.

At the moment, he is testing a really fast jet plane
