The Vampire F.1 entered Royal Air Force service in March 1946, to be followed by the revised and more capable F.3 just two years later. The Vampire F.3 was basically a longer-range version of its predecessor, featuring increased internal fuel capacity and the ability to carry two eternal fuel tanks. This latest variant also differed visually, in that it incorporated taller and more rounded vertical stabilizers, a lowered horizontal stabilizer, and distinctive ‘acorn’ fairings at the base of each vertical stabilizer. Although this was still relatively new technology, de Havilland cleverly designed the aircraft to be simple to maintain and operate, earning the aircraft an enviable reputation for reliability amongst air and ground crews alike and allowing more pilots to safely make the transition to jet powered flight.
