  Photographer  
  Remarks  
The Gloster Meteor was the first British jet fighter and the Allies' only operational jet aircraft during the Second World War. The Meteor's development was heavily reliant on its ground-breaking turbojet engines, pioneered by Sir Frank Whittle and his company, Power Jets Ltd. Development of the aircraft began in 1940, although work on the engines had been under way since 1936. The Meteor first flew in 1943 and commenced operations on 27 July 1944 with No. 616 Squadron RAF. Nicknamed the "Meatbox", the Meteor was not a sophisticated aircraft in its aerodynamics, but proved to be a successful combat fighter. Gloster's 1946 civil Meteor F.4 demonstrator G-AIDC was the first civilian-registered jet aircraft in the world.

WL332 was delivered into service 18.4.52 and decommissioned 12.2.69. Now languishing in the Long Marston graveyard....its fate very uncertain.

  Photographer  
  Remarks  
WK935 is a much modified Gloster Meteor F8 fighter. The "prone position/prone pilot" Meteor was used to evaluate the effects of "g"-forces while flying in a prone position. Along with the Reid and Sigrist R.S.4 "Bobsleigh", the Gloster Meteor was engaged in a proof-of-concept experimental programme that proved in practice that the difficulties of operating the controls of the aircraft outweighed the advantages of sustaining higher g effects.

WS739 is one of the final Meteor night fighter variants NF.14. First flown on 23 October 1953, the NF.14 was based on the NF.12 but had an even longer nose, extended by a further 17 inches to accommodate new equipment, increasing the total length to 51 ft 4 in (15.65 m)!

Gloster Meteor F4 (EE549)   
  Location and date  
West Sussex - Tangmere Military Aviation Museum (United Kingdom) 
August 26, 2014
  Photographer  
  Remarks  
The RAF High Speed Flight was reformed in late 1945 at Tangmere in order to make an attempt on the world air speed record. In August 1946, it received Meteor F4 EE549 direct from the Gloster Aircraft Company. On 7th September 1946, Gp Capt E M (Teddy) Donaldson set a new world record of 615.78 mph flying EE549 off the Sussex coast at Rustington. On returning from the Paris Air Show in January 1947, the same aircraft set a new record time of 20 min 11 sec between Paris (Le Bourget) and London (Croydon). She later saw service with the Fighter Command units before being retired to instructional airframe duties at Cranwell in June 1952.

El bonito Meteor solo mostró sus habilidades en solitario el viernes, apareciendo el sábado en la formación histórica. Curiosamente los holandeses tienen por costumbre realizar actos viernes y sábado (en vez de sábado y domingo como todos sus vecinos europeos)
