The Fury

By TornadoTys
An image from my day at Duxford Battle of Britain Airshow this September 2019.

The aircraft is a Hawker Sea Fury. Which was the last piston fighter of the RAF and this type was in Korea war. flying against the Mig-15 jet fighter.
A seafury did shoot down a Mig-15 in the Korean war.
It was one of the fastest production single reciprocating engine aircraft ever built.
Sea Furies were fitted with the powerful Bristol Centaurus engine, and armed with four wing-mounted Hispano V cannons

Trying to make aircraft photos a little more interesting I have post edited this image to monochrome.

Hope you guys like it

Very nice shot indeed. These birds were a handful on the hard but just great in the air. Far removed from a F-35.
