E.Greenwood - Flying the Trent-Meteor /Viewed from the Cockpit/
The Trent-Meteor in flight, with the starboard engine closed down and the propeller feathered. The extra fin area, in the form of small surfaces on the tailplane leading edge, was needed for directional stability with the propeller installation.
The Trent-Meteor was an early Mark I airframe converted to have the new engine installation. The early sideways opening cockpit canopy is shown.
