11:40 AM. Four officers and two crew aboard a York transport aircraft, accompanied by a formation of six meteor jets, encountered a 100' oval with three bumps or protrusions on the bottom. Ground radar tracked the object which was stationary and above 25,000 feet. The object departed at an incredible speed of 1500 mph. See detailed account from a letter to Jenny Randles linked below.
The first two F.Mk 1 Meteors went operational on July 12, 1944 with 616 Squadron. The first operational sorties were flown on July of 1947.
