Gloster Meteor F.Mk 3 RAF

No.616 Sqn, EE239, Lubeck,

Germany, 1945

The Gloster Meteor, first flown in 1943, was the RAF's first jet fighter. It entered service with 616 Squadron in July 1944. At that time, jets were considered extremely secretive and the Meteor was therefore limited in its use in combat. Often painted white to facilitate its identification by other Allied aircraft and to avoid being confused with German aircraft, the F3 was sent in 1945 with 616 Squadron to the 2nd TAF to provide air defence against the Messerschmitt Me 262. Later in the year the squadron was operational in the Netherlands to support the Canadian Army in its efforts to get the Germans out of Holland, engaging in ground attacks because it did not encounter a single enemy aircraft during its sorties.
