I had forgotten I had this one. An NF14. Not the prettiest mark with the long snout.

Kemble June 2003.

Yes it is Martin Baker still use it to test ejector seats. For low level ejections they do it at their base at Chalgrove in southern England. For high altitude ejections they use Lossiemouth in Scotland, if the weather is suitable, or sometimes sunnier locations in Europe.

The Gloster Meteor was the UK’s first jet fighter and first flew in 1943. Martin Baker have two Meteors that they keep for testing. There is one other flying in the UK and apparently one in Australia.

Few aircraft types from that era are still used today, much less fighters. Meteors were used into the 1970's in various air forces, a true testament to the design.

Is that Meatbox pregnant? If not what is it hanging on to?

I'll bet that the driver just loved it when he pushed the tit and those 4 Hispanos let go either side of him :eek:

Keep the Meatbox photos coming folks!

Right… that’s enough of these modern noisy things with no propellors. Time for a real aeroplane!  :p :lol: :lol:

Magnificent captures Mark .

Agree. They (jets) have their place, but these flying machines are so nice.
But those Meteors had nice lines to them and are quite attractive IMO.

I agree Richard, the early jets had real style. I particularly like the Hunter and the Buccaneer. For sheer performance, power and noise you’ve got to go a long way to beat the Lightning but my real love is piston engined warbirds!

One of my favorite early jets, and certainly my favourite scheme, the Avon Sabre. The Commonwealth Aircraft Company took a reasonably engined but slightly under gunned fighter and gave the RAAF the ultimate version with a Roll Royce Avon engine in place of the General Electric J47 and 2x30mm cannon instead of the 6x .50 cal machine guns.

Oh, and for you Mark, an Australian built CAC Mustang too.

Both of these belong to the recently formed 100 (Historic) Sqn RAAF.

The F 86 is one of my favorites when it comes to jets of that era too & having seen the Golden Hawks perform back then that's my preferred paint scheme. This one wasn't an original Golden Hawk but was owned by Vintage Wings of Canada. When they hold their annual air show it's usually flown by astronaut & former ISS Commander Col Chris Hadfield. The jet was sold a few years ago & I believe went to Europe.
