Meteor Jet 1952
"Gloster Meteor Jet" 2008 Oil on linen on board, 12.8x15.2cm (5"x6")
For as long as I can remember this aircraft has been parked at Parafield Airport, I drove past it nearly every day for the past three years as it was next to where I was working. It always looked great parked on the tarmac and often admired it whilst waiting for the traffic to clear. The warbird is a 1952 Gloster Meteor F8 and is much loved and cared for by the Classic Jet Fighter Museum.
