Wallpaper Description:
Gloster Meteor NF.11 WM167 was built in Coventry in 1952 and flew with the Royal Air Force until 1975, seeing out the final years of its service as a target tug. It was purchased by a private collector and reverted to NF.11 configuration shortly afterwards.

The UK’s last flying Gloster Meteor is now in private hands and touched down for the final time on Saturday 5th January at Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome and will now be maintained in a taxiable condition.

In the 1950s, the Meteor became increasingly obsolete as more nations introduced jet fighters, many of these newcomers having adopted a swept wing instead of the Meteor's conventional straight wing; in RAF service, the Meteor was replaced by newer types such as the Hawker Hunter and Gloster Javelin.
As of 2018, two Meteors, G-JSMA and G-JWMA, remain in active service with the Martin-Baker company as ejection seat testbeds.[4] One further aircraft in the UK remains airworthy, as does another in Australia.
