CharacteristicsEdit


In 1948, two production Gloster Meteor F.3 were converted to the Gloster (Sea) Meteor F.Mk.3 version (Roman numerals in British designations had changed to Arabic numerals in 1946) for test flights from aircraft carriers. The planes had their armament removed, a landing hook fitted, and the gear legs reinforced. The Derwent Mk.1 engines were replaced with Derwent Mk.5 models. These aircraft performed 32 landings on board HMS Illustrious.
