The Gloster Meteor was the first British jet fighter and the Allies first operational jet aircraft used during World War II. First flown on March 10, 1943, the Meteor entered service with the RAF in July of 1944. Originally confined to operations over the United Kingdom to preserve the secrets of its technology, the Meteor was soon used on anti-V1 flying bomb patrols. Their acceleration allowed them to be very effective in this role, accounting for 14 V1s destroyed by the end of the war. Specialized variants of the aircraft were developed for use in photo-reconnaissance and as night fighters. The Meteor was operated by several nations into the 1960s.


The Corgi Aviation Archive features a wide selection of high quality, ready-made diecast model airplanes. Each model is crafted with meticulous attention to detail, using specifications of the original aircraft. Corgi models are built with diecast metal and some plastic components.

This model of a Meteor F3 features:

  • Realistic panel lines
  • Detailed cockpit with pilot figure
  • Historically accurate printed markings
  • Optional extended landing gear
  • Display stand
  • Individually numbered collector card
