    Default Gloster Meteor discussion

    This is a discussion thread for the following file:

    Gloster Meteor

    This is a Gloster Meteror formerly in service in the Royal Danish Airforce. It is now on display outside a school in Vandel. Unfortunately, the resolution is not quite good.

    No, it's outside the local museum of Vandel. And the museum is outside the local school.
