Hi all,
Was doing some light reading on the Meteor and came across a idea UK had to fit a Meteor with a inflight refueling probe ??? on the nose of the aircraft?.
Does anyone have know if this was for real or did it get very far?............was one ever built?...........what did it look like?

Any help would be great!.

The RAF tested in flight refueling in the 50's with a modified Meteor but never applied the technology to operationnal Meteors.
