The Gloster Meteor was the first British jet fighter and the Allies' only jet aircraft to achieve combat operations during the Second World War. The Meteor's development was heavily reliant on its ground-breaking turbojet engines, pioneered by Sir Frank Whittle and his company, Power Jets Ltd. Development of the aircraft began in 1940, although work on the engines had been under way since 1936.
Besides the RAF, Several other operator such as Australia, Argentina, Canada and Israel flew the Meteor. It was deployed against the V1 Buzzbombs and flew armed reconnaissance and ground attack operations and missions. The Gloster Meteor became the backbone of RAF fighter command in its F4 and F8 until the advent of swept wing aircraft.
