    Default One of my latest warbirds!

    I was scrolling thru some of the YouTube videos for warbirds and came across 2 videos of the Hawker Sea Fury. One video was on a complete restoration and final flight. The other video was on a flight comparison between the North American P51 and the Hawker Sea Fury. I was very impressed by how fast the Sea Fury performer. It performed close to the P51, however, many have tried and many have only come close, but not quite there. Here's the download. It does fly very stable, so I will probably keep it around for awhile!

    "It 'tis indeed!" The videos on YouTube were very impressive, that's what got my interest in finding a download for it!

    Thanks Jan! Rick

    Thanks Larry! I was never familiar with this aircraft until recently! Since downloading this one, it is proving itself to be a nice stable download, and yes, it does have some available airspeed to go with it!

    Looks like it's following -- or preceding -- some Hawker Tempest. Fine!

    Huh? This is the Hawker Sea Fury Gerard. I think the Tempest came later?

    I'd thought the opposite. Not a specialist for those planes. Should have checked on the Internet. I like the Hawker Tempest, or Typhoon!

    Gerard - I do have to stand corrected. The Typhoon and the Tempest preceded the Sea Fury. You have to read a lot of history just to find the production dates, and my just quickly reading, that's what I have come up with!

    Either way, they apparently served their countries well in the air battle of WWII!
