The de Havilland Vampire was the second jet fighter aircraft to enter service with the RAF. It served front line squadrons from the mid 1940’s to the mid 1950’s, and although it was never actually used in the war, it took part in an RAF Victory flypast over London as early as 1946. It was the first jet aircraft to fly across the Atlantic in 1948, and even in 1945 it became the first jet aircraft to land and take off from a carrier. Vampire remained in service as a trainer till the 60’s. It’s intended replacement, the Venom, was also withdrawn from frontline service in 1962. The FSX aircraft featured are freeware.
