No 5 School of Technical
Prior to becoming the home of No 1 Radio School in 1951 RAF Locking was involved in aircraft trade training as No 5 School of Technical Training. One aircraft that was used for training during that period was the Gloster F9/40 Fighter Prototype, the precursor to the Gloster Meteor. The F9/40 first flew on 5th March 1943 and represented a milestone in jet engine powered fighters. After completing its trials one F9/40 was transferred to the No 5 School of Technical Training RAF Locking. The aircraft was at RAF Locking from 25th April 1945 to January 1951. This particular ex RAF Locking aircraft is now part of the national collection of aircraft and can be seen at the RAF Museum Cosford.
