Turbo-Union RB199 | Metrovick F2/4 Beryl

Turbo-Union RB199 

Metrovick F2/4 Beryl
Development of the F2, the first British axial flow turbo-jet, began in f 940. After initial flight trials in the tail of an Avro Lancaster, two F2s were installed in a Gloster Meteor and first flew  on  13  November  1943.  After  early problems the F2/4 Beryl was developed which gave up to 4000 lb thrust and was used to power the Saunders Roe SR/A1 flying boat fighter.
