    Excellent Image Colin. First aeroplane I sat in at the age of 7 by a RAF uncle of mine and the aviation bug was hiding in there and bit me. Went solo at 16 1/2 (6 months before being able to legally drive a car on the road) Welcome to the Aeronautics & Aviation Group. – Ted

  • Thanks for the welcome Ted. My eyesight wasn’t good enough to be aircrew when I was young, It’s amazing now I’ve had cataract operations – 20/20! As a instrument fitter the Meteor F.3 was one of the aircraft I trained on. Colin.

    Nice shot Colin.
    We have a Meteor flying in Australia – at the Temora Aviation Museum.
    It is an F8 version that was aquired from Britain in the 1980s or 1990s – it arrived here wearing a green/grey camouflage scheme. It now wears the markings of an RAAF Meteor that flew in the Korean War and shot down a Mig-15.

  • Thanks Muz. The last Meteor F.8 I saw flying was one named “Winston” at an Air Tattoo at Greenham Common about twenty years ago. i think I’ve a picture of it somewhere.

    Wow! You must have a big lens to get such large “in frame scale” like this! An excellent subject and great fine details!

  • Thanks a lot! Glad you liked it enough to make it a favourite.
