This British Gloster Meteor is owned by Air Atlantique Classic Flight based at Coventry Airport in Coventry, West Midlands, England.

It returned to the sky after a 20-year restoration and became the world's oldest flyable British jet aircraft.

Built by Gloster Aircraft at Hucklecote, Gloucestershire in mid 1949 it was delivered to the Royal Air Force on September 2. The Central Fighter Establishment at RAF West Raynham was the first to take WA591 on charge prior to handing it over to 226OCU at RAF Stradishall, Suffolk on October 31.

Shot taken at Volkel Air Base in the Netherlands.
