    The Messerschmitt Me 163 Komet was a German rocket-powered interceptor aircraft. Designed by Alexander Lippisch, it is the only rocket-powered fighter aircraft ever to have been operational and the first piloted aircraft of any type to exceed 1000 km/h (621 mph) in level flight. Its performance and aspects of its design were unprecedented. German test pilot Heini Dittmar in early July 1944 reached , an unofficial flight airspeed record unmatched by turbojet-powered aircraft for almost a decade. Over 300 Komets were built, but the aircraft proved ineffective in its dedicated role as an interceptor and destroyed about nine to 18 Allied aircraft against 10 losses. Aside from combat losses many pilots were killed during testing and training.

It does not include Middlesbrough, Redcar and Cleveland or other areas of Yorkshire, such as Sedbergh not included in the aforementioned administrative areas. The population in 2011 was 5,284,000.

Regional ministers were not reappointed by the incoming Coalition Government, and the Government Offices were abolished in 2011.
