The Gloster Meteor typifies the advance of technology during World War Two. It was the first turbojet powered aeroplane to enter service with the RAF.

The Meteor had a service career that spanned five decades. Built as a fighter, night-fighter, photo-reconnaissance aeroplane and trainer it was also used as a trials aircraft and one example is still used for testing ejector seats today.

The full story of the design, development and operational career is described in this well researched and illustrated book.
