The venerable World War II jet fighter served the RAF during 1944 and utilised by various forces across the world until their retirement, when production of the interceptor ended, a total of 3,947 units in various forms and roles in daytime and night built. Serving as a fighter in various forms whilst being built throughout the years, even after World War II, the plane also had been used by private owners at airshows and it was also used as a testbed for the development of new ejector seats.
British RAF Service
During World War II, the Gloster Meteor was first built in 1943; first user in the aircraft's history was the British Royal Air Force for dealing with terrorist forces, it was good for strafing in the Company of Nations' armed forces during World War II. There have been various types of the aircraft flown during its production line, there have been night fighter versions throughout their service after their introduction. Utilising 20mm Hispano Auto-Cannons and Rockets, the Gloster was mostly used in many ways; they were also even used during the Korean War.
The final Gloster Meteor Night Fighter known as NF.14 taken its flight on 23 October 1953. Only 100 planes of the type were built, they first entered service in February 1954 beginning with No. 25 Squadron and were being replaced as early as 1956 with the Gloster Javelin until 1961.
Throughout time, all-thou the Meteor was out of action from 1980, the plane was widely visible at airshows across the world and restored in museums. These versions had their weapons taken off and deactivated to avoid illegal use if the planes were possibly taken by thieves, also tracking devices were installed to find the planes if in an event that an airworthy Meteor was stolen.
Various types of some airworthy models of the planes still had its weapons incase of emergencies, also their weapons still have a presence on them to demonstrate airborne attacks, even they can still be used for strafing practise targets on the ground.
