      AIRCRAFT. Gloster Javelin. SCALE & KIT. 1/48 Airfix. MODELER. Unknown. HISTORY. The Gloster Javelin is a twin-engined T-tailed delta-wing subsonic night and all-weather interceptor aircraft that served with Britain’s Royal Air Force from the mids until the late s. The last aircraft design to bear the Gloster name, it was introduced in after a lengthy development period and. The RAF’s only delta-winged fighter – the Gloster Javelin was also Britain’s first true All-Weather Fighter. Based in the UK and in Germany, the RAF’s Javelin squadrons formed the front line of Britain’s air defences in the late s and early s. During this time J.

    The Gloster Javelin was the UK’s first line of night and all-weather air defence both at home and in RAF Germany. In the s, when it replaced the Meteor and Venom, this revolutionary bomber/interceptor became the focus of many great stories told. Published in , Gloster Javelin is a short reference book about the famous RAF fighter aircraft with the styling of a flat-iron. The shortness of the book means that the text is more of a thumb-nail sketch at times, and therefore lacks detail - the greater part of the book is taken up by 96 well captioned photos, numerous cutaway illustrations of Javelins and their components, and a huge /5.

    Nevertheless, the Gloster Javelin was under-rated. Entering service at the wrong time as Duncan Sandys’ Defence White Paper unwittingly claimed the end of the manned fighter, the Javelin was also superseded by the English Electric Lightning with its truly supersonic performance. He is the author of Winged Crusaders: 14 Squadron RFC and RAF , Blue Diamonds: The Exploits of 14 Squadron RAF , Tornado Over the Tigris: Recollections of a Fast Jet Pilot and Gloster Javelin: An Operational History all published by Pen and Sword Books.
