Photo Comment

This Meteor was delivered to the Danish Air Force in Jul-1951 as 44-499. In 1960 the serial was changed to B-499. It was withdrawn from use in Apr-1961 and struck off charge in Mar-1963. It then went into storage at Karup where it was noted 1975 to 1988. In 1988 it went into storage at the Danmarks Flymuseum at Billund where it was still noted in 1994. In Apr-2000 it arrived at the Dansk Veteranflysamling wich in Jun-2007 changed name to Danmarks Flymuseum, painted as 44-499 again.
