    It's one of each; note the different shapes in the noses. The Vampire is the stubbier one.
    My notifications aren't working properly so I saw this late.
    Ok cool. My WWII knowledge is a bit meh...
    I know a little but not enough.

    It's barely WW2, in fairness, the Vampire served for about 5 minutes before the end of the war. The Venom entered service in 52.
    They're still notable for being the first generation of jet combat aircraft though.

    Well I know the vampire was narrowly beaten but the Me-262 in terms of being the first.

    You're thinking of the Meteor. The Vampire was the second British jet.

    Really? I'm pretty sure the Messerschmit 262 was the first jet fighter.

    First in service.

    But that's not what I was saying.

    I'm saying the Vampire was the second British jet after the Gloster Meteor which was itself beaten into service (though only just) by the Me262.
