Gloster Meteor T.7A Mulet

Twin engine two seat jet trainer



In order to improve longitudinal stability, the Belgian company Fairey modified a number of Meteor T.7 trainers to a standard unique to Belgium, the T.7A or T.7½ Mulet. This was obtained by fitting a Meteor F.8 tail-assembly to the forward fuselage of the T.7. Information exists on 6 conversions but this is not confirmed. Several of these Mulets were sold to the Israeli Air Force in the late fifties, and some can still be seen displayed at the Israel Air Force Museum at Hatzerim.
