Hawker Fury Mk.I K2065, RAF No.1 Squadron, ‘C’ Flight Leaders Aircraft, Tangmere Aerodrome, circa 1932
Representing something of a golden era for British aviation, the 1930s saw a rapid expansion of the Royal Air Force and the service introduction of several aircraft types that could claim to be the ultimate biplane fighter. At the head of this group, the beautiful Hawker Fury came at the end of a long line of successful Hawker biplane designs and when it entered RAF service with No.43 Squadron in the summer of 1931, it became the fastest fighter aircraft in their history.
Viewed as a thoroughbred fighter, only the best pilots of the RAF’s elite squadrons were selected to fly the capable Hawker Fury, which was seen to represent the effectiveness and professionalism of the modern Royal Air Force. No.1 Squadron began receiving their Hawker Furys in February 1932 and this early example is presented with the larger pre-1934 roundels and rudder stripes, as well as having the individual flight’s colours painted on the top fuselage decking. As the ‘C’ Flight Commander’s aircraft, it also carries the flight’s yellow colour on the fin, spinner and wheel covers giving this handsome aircraft an even more striking appearance.

Undoubtedly one of the most handsome aircraft ever built, the magnificent Hawker Fury represented the very pinnacle of biplane fighter technology and entered service at a time when RAF aircraft were presented in some of their most flamboyant schemes. A real pilot’s aeroplane, the Fury was the forerunner of the famous Hurricane fighter of WWII.

AA27304 Hawker Fury Mk.I, K2065, RAF No.1 Squadron, 100 Years of the RAF
A very nice release of the Hawker Fury with no obvious issues and very dainty. Corgi went for the yellow scheme which, on balance, looks correct. It goes well with the previous 'silver wings' Hawker Fury - hopefully this will do well to encourage another release soon..
