Sixty years ago this September, Group Captain E.M. (Teddy) Donaldson of the RAF’s High Speed Flight took off from Tangmere and flew Meteor F4 EE549 along a monitored course off the Sussex coast to claim a new world airspeed record of 616 mph. This actual aircraft is on display in the Merston Hall at the Museum.
To commemorate this tremendous British achievement the Museum is holding its own Meteor World Speed Record day on Sunday September 3rd. As well as the Museum’s Honorary President, Neville Duke, and Peter Twiss, the first man past 1000mph, we are expecting Teddy Donaldson’s daughter and a number of other aviation personalities to be present. And we are hoping to welcome as many Meteor pilots as possible, so if you flew any mark of Meteor at any time in your career please come and join us on the day. It would be most helpful if you could contact us beforehand at email@example.com so that we can prepare your special guest badge.
