Meteor T7 in 'thank you' flight from Coventry Airport


An aircraft, which was built in 1949 and retired in 1963, has flown out of Coventry Airport.

The Classic Aircraft Trust flew its Royal Air Force Gloster Meteor T7 to thank the team who spent about 20 years restoring it.

Air Atlantique, in Coventry, a home for classic aircraft, described it as "the world's oldest twin-engined jet" that is still airworthy.

The Meteor is based at Coventry Airport and will appear at airshows throughout the year.
