HAWKER SEA FURY FB11, F-AYSA

The Hawker Sea Fury was a carrier-borne fighter designed and built by Hawker Aircraft Limited. It was the last propeller-driven fighter to serve in the Royal Navy, and one of the fastest single-engine piston aircraft ever built. Developed during the Second World War, the Sea Fury entered service two years after the end of the war.
It proved to be a popular aircraft with a number of countries and was used during the Korean War in the early 1950s, as well as the failed Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba in 1961.

In 1979, this aircraft was recovered in Iraq by Ed Jurist and David Tallichet, and restored to flying condition using a number of parts salvaged from other Iraqi Furies. The aircraft then changed owners several times. Since 1984, this Sea Fury has carried the markings of the Royal Australian Navy.
