    Default Gloster Meteor

    The Gloster Meteor was the only Allied jet fighter to see combat in WW2. It entered service with the RAF in 1944. The F.1 was made in limited numbers and used mainly against V1s. It was soon replaced by the F.3 the only other WW2 version.

    The Meteor was not an advanced design, but it was successful and after the war it was used by over 15 countries and eventually served with more than 50 squadrons in Britain. The Meteor saw post-war combat in Korea, Argentina, Algeria and Suez.

    The Meteor was armed with 4 x 20mm cannon.

    This example is a Meteor F.1 of 616 Squadron RAF circa 1944.

    Yeah, I'm sick and tired of reading about how the Me262 was the only jet fighter in WW2 when the difference in tim between it and the Gloster Meteor was only a matter of months and its engines didn't self destruct after less than 20 hours of use.

    The Meteor actually became the first operational combat jet aircraft in WW2 - the Germans did not form an operational unit (from the trials and development units) until after the Meteor entered full RAF Squadron service.
    IN the days of lace-ruffles, perukes and brocade
    Brown Bess was a partner whom none could despise
    An out-spoken, flinty-lipped, brazen-faced jade,
    With a habit of looking men straight in the eyes
    At Blenheim and Ramillies fops would confess
    They were pierced to the heart by the charms of Brown Bess.

    Life is short... We should then cherish every sec of it.

    As regards the Meteor not being an advanced design - being too advanced, at times, could be a disadvantage. The Me262 suffered substantially from technical problems resulting from its "advanced" character. The same might be said of late-war bomber designs in the US. Best regards, JR.
