Hawker Fury Trainer


                                  Another lousy shot....or at least it is, if one is a modeller trying to obtain details from it (and I
                                  do get a fair number of the modelling fraternity requesting higher res scans - which I am happy
                                  to supply).   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 Trainers
                                  were used to indoctrinate Iraqi pilots into this beast.  I suppose this entry should really be under
                                  "Iraq" but the roundels on the aircraft appear to be RAF.
