Gloster G.41F Meteor F.Mk.4

02/28/2007. Remarks by Alfred Damen: "Aircraft pictured is undergoing a major overhaul before being re-sprayed in the new camouflage scheme. This aircraft is one of the custom built Mk.4s (ex G-5-173 and I-073) accepted by the Argentine Air Force on July 6, 1949. It was struck off charge December 30, 1970. The Argentine Meteor history is a nice tale. Read about it."
