The Gloster Meteor was the first British jet and the Allies’ first operational jet fighter during WWII, entering service with the RAF in July 1944 and only retired in 1955. The F3 variant was introduced in 1945. Built for a crew of one, it was powered by 2 Rolls-Royce Derwent engines, thanks to Sir Frank Whittle’s innovative if not revolutionary design capabilities. The Meteor had a top speed at 10,000 ft of 600 mph, a ceiling of 43,000 ft and a range of 600 miles. Its armaments could include guns, bombs or rockets.
