The de Havilland Vampire was a British jet fighter developed during WWII. It was the second jet, after the Gloster Meteor, operated by the RAF. The Vampire Mk.5, which flew in June 1948, was a fighter-bomber modified from a Vampire F.3 fighter.
It was a single-seat monoplane aircraft, of a combined wood-and-metal construction, powered by a DH Goblin turbojet. It featured twin-boom tail configuration with two wing-root intakes, bubble canopy and was fitted with a non-ejection seat. Two external tanks or 500lb bombs could be carried under the wing, while eight 3" RPs could be attached inboard of the booms.
The Vampire replaced wartime piston-engine fighters and was in front-line service until 1953. The Vampire FB.5 equipped many RAF units in Europe, the Middle East and the Far East.
Almost 3,300 Vampires of all marks were manufactured, a quarter of them built under licence in other countries. It was also sold to many nations and operated in a wide range of environments around the world.
