Gloster Meteor

WAS £14.99 £7.49

Product description

The Gloster Meteor was the first turbojet powered aeroplane to enter service with the RAF. Its service career spanned five decades, and one example is still used to test ejector seats today. This volume tells the plane's history.


About the book:
The only RAF jet to see service in World War II, the Gloster Meteor remained in service for several years as an interceptor, ground attack airplane, night fighter, and trainer. The Meteor's simple construction also made it an ideal test plane for engines, ejector seats, and other developing technologies. This comprehensive history follows the long-serving Meteor from World War II to the present, providing both period photographs and modern shots of Meteors that are still operative.
