Dust Jacket Condition: No Dust Jacket. 178 pages, well illustrated, 3-views, cloth, very good. 7-1/2 by 11 inches. From Chapter 1: George Carter assented to design Britain's first jet propelled aeroplane. One can imagine his thoughts at this time; at the realization that here was a demand for an aircraft entirely new in conception; entirely different from anything that had ever gone before; a fresh concept of flight. Thus it was that Glosters became the first British aircraft company to agree to develop and manufacture a 'jet.'. Seller Inventory # 16643

About this Item: Doubleday & Co., Garden City, 1963. Hard Cover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. 178 pages, well illustrated, tone 3-views, cloth, DJ, very good. 7-1/2 by 11 inches. From the DJ: "THE GLOSTER METEOR covers the complete history of this remarkable aeroplane from its original conception to the last production machine." From Wikipedia: "The Gloster Meteor was the first British jet fighter and the Allies' first operational jet aircraft. The Meteor's development was heavily reliant on its ground-breaking turbojet engines, developed by Sir Frank Whittle and his company, Power Jets Ltd. Development of the aircraft began in 1940, work on the engines had started in 1936. The Meteor first flew in 1943 and commenced operations on 27 July 1944 with 616 Squadron of the Royal Air Force (RAF). Although the Meteor was not an aerodynamically advanced aircraft, it proved to be a successful and effective combat fighter. Several major variants of Meteor were made to incorporate technological advances during the 1940s and 1950s. Thousands of Meteors were built to serve in the RAF and other air forces, and remained in use for several decades. The Meteor saw limited action in the Second World War, while Meteors of the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) provided a significant contribution to the Korean War and several other operators such as Argentina, Egypt and Israel also flew Meteors in regional conflicts. As of 2011, two Meteors, WL419 and WA638, have remained in active service with the Martin-Baker company as ejection seat testbeds.". Seller Inventory # 34048
