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.Detailed cockpit with pilot figure
