Hawker Fury Trainer
Another lousy shot....or at
least it is, if one is a modeller trying to obtain details from it (and
do get a fair number of the modelling fraternity requesting higher res
scans - which I am happy
Five two seat Furys were built specifically for the Iraqi Air Force,
two being deliv-
ered in 1949 and three in 1953. The land based
Fury never did fly (literally) with the RAF.
However, some 55 were
supplied to Iraq (unofficially called Baghdad Furys) and the five
were used to indoctrinate
Iraqi pilots into this beast. I suppose this entry should really
"Iraq" but the roundels on
the aircraft appear to be RAF.
