The Javelin entered service with the RAF in 1956 with No. 46 Squadron RAF based at RAF Odiham, England and at its peak (in the years 1959 to 1962), equipped 14 squadrons. After 1962, numbers dropped rapidly and, by 1964, only four squadrons were flying the type.
The Gloster Javelin was an "all-weather" interceptor aircraft that served with Britain's Royal Air Force in the late 1950s and most of the 1960s. It was a large T-tailed delta-wing aircraft designed for night and bad weather operations. This was the last aircraft to bear the Gloster name.
