No.

At least, not while surviving.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

hi all,

The RAF Gloster Meteor Jet was the fastest plane in the whole of 1946 and held the World's Speed Record...but didn't quite break the sound barrier http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/inlove.gif

Russia's procurement team headed by Eva Vestov were seriously considering the purchase of 48 Meteors at this time and I'm amazed that the Meteor was not included in this package.

Eva and her team visited Farnborough in July 1946 and were well known for their high antics !!

hi all,

Further to the above.

Eva Vestov was found during the last evening of her procurement visit slumped in the cockpit of the trials Meteor at Farnborough somewhat the worse for having imbibed a ccktail of warm English beer and vodka http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif.

It was rumoured in RAF circles that it took the best efforts of a Squadron Leader and three Pilot Officers to coax/extricate her from the cockpit,such was her love of the Meteor!!

Stalin heard of the incident and cancelled the expected order of 48 Meteors and the rest is history.

not in 1946:


The first man to break the "sound barrier" was Capt. Charles E. Yeager, better known as Chuck Yeager, of the US Air Force. He reached this milestone of aviation history on 14 October 1947 over the test ranges at Muroc Field, now known as Edwards Air Force Base. Yeager accomplished this feat while flying the first Bell XS-1. Later renamed the X-1, this vehicle was a rocket-powered high-speed research aircraft.

Raaaid is in Spain still? HE can buy it before USA and try it his silly self!

Hey Raaid? You gonna try it or we give it to Mikey?

I've seen film they show on The Propaganda, errr, History Channel every so often, it is from
Germany and shows a test of the He-163 trying for 1000kph record at alt. I don't know the alt
so I don't know the mach. 163 is very bullet-like. Problem is tail is behind wings and the
faster you go, the more you need to pitch down. You speed up, your lift increases so you trim
the nose down and when you are going really, really, really fast your nose has to be a bit
severly down to keep you from climbing or pulling out of a dive; the lift vector off the wing
is tilted to the front (a condition known as nose-tuck, but don't worry you get more drag than
that vector gives so just call it efficiency) and the disturbed air coming off the trailing
edges of the wings just doesn't go downwards much and the tail becomes more and more ineffective
at holding its' end of the balance of the plane. Tailplanes are small wings to help balance and
control, they work by lift and it's all very cool. High tailplane is a must for transonic alone.
I forget exactly why but all-flying (tailplane pivots, no seperate elevator surface) was also
critical... it's in Charles Yeager's autobio along with a lot of other good reading.

Very famous German test pilot flew that 163 in the film and it sort of hit the speed 1000 but
not at all stable, kind of bobbing then fluttering and when it lost it, it lost it quick and
hard nose straight down in maybe 1/4 sec and the whole plane breaking up. Pilot G's might have
exceeded 100, what is the compressibility speed of a pilot in suit and helmet?

Dood, Oprah would eat more cake regardless of what some trees in a forest are doing, let alone anything else. Now she just has her personal cosmetic surgeon "remove" any unwanted physical effects resulting from eating said cake.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
