Latest in the series of British pilotless target aircraft to be announced is the Meteor U Mk.15, illustrated here. Camera containers are at the wingtip, as on the Firefly U Mk.8. The Meteor U Mk.16 is a similar conversion of the Meteor 8.
Squadron markings, in the form of a yellow bell on an azure background, are now carried by the Canberra P.R. Mk. 7s of No. 80 Squadron at Laarbruch. The marking honours Major Bell, the squadron's first commander.
