This Gloster Meteor F3 5897M is modelled on the aircraft used as a training aircraft post-war by the RAF Recruit Training section and based at RAF Hednesford. It is decorated in silver with red nose cone and black cockpit. The RAF roundel appears on the upper and lower wings and on the rear fuselage. Of the 3947 built, five fully airworthy Gloster Meteors survive today although there are many in museums across the world.

Gloster Meteor F.Mk 3

Designed as a turbojet-powered fighter in a time when piston-engined aircraft still dominated the skies, the Gloster Meteor first flew on March 5, 1943. The Meteor was the first British jet fighter and the only Allied jet aircraft to see service during WWII. It debuted around the same time as the German Me 262, but was not used for dogfighting-instead, Meteors were used to combat the V1 Flying Bomb. The Meteor's service during WWII was limited, but it saw combat during the Korean War and was used by the Royal Australian Air Force and by the Air Forces of more than a dozen other nations until its ultimate retirement in the 1970s.
