Sea Fury GB 802 NAS 1 by WS-Clave Sea Fury GB 802 NAS 1 by WS-Clave
The Hawker Sea Fury was a progression from the Typhoon and Tempest fighter designs and entered service early in 1945. It was one of the fastest piston-engined fighters of WW2.

The Sea Fury saw combat after WW2 in Korea, at the Bay of Pigs in Cuba (where several CIA B-26s were downed) and Burma.

The F 10 was armed with 4 x 20mm cannon. The FB 11 was armed with 4 x 20mm cannon and could also be fitted for rockets, bombs, and drop-tanks. The T 20 was a trainer, and all other models were export designations.

This example is an FB 11 of 802 Naval Air Squadron circa 1952.
