    "Gloster Trent Meteor, the Meteor was not only the 1st British jet fighter to enter service but also the 1st to fly with turboprops in September 20th 1945. The so called Gloster Trent Meteor was only intended for research purposes tough."

    While we were building battleships Montana was the only state to never have an operational battleship named after it.
