Hawker Sea Fury – WarbirdTech Volume 37


Kev Darling


The Hawker Sea Fury is a bit of a mystery to most aircraft enthusiasts. If they’re familiar with Hawker and Sydney Camm’s designs, this plane – the Royal Navy’s last prop-driven fighter – is known to them, though not with much detail. Reno racing fanatics also know the Fury and the Sea Fury, but to air racing fans the Hawker design is just an airframe on which to hang the most powerful piston engine and biggest propeller possible.
