Date: 1st July 2007
Catalogue Number: No.8105
Pages : 164 (92 in colour)
The Hawker Fury was perhaps the most beautiful biplane fighter ever built, and was the RAF's first aircraft capable of exceeding 200mph in level flight. Together with its naval counterpart, the Nimrod, the Fury served with many air forces right up until the beginning of WW2. In RAF service, the Fury sported all the highly colourful squadron markings of the day, and then went into camouflage as war approached. This book describes the design, development and service of the Fury and Nimrod, with all the forces which used them. It talks about a rarely documented aspect of World War Two aviation history. It features superb colour illustrations of camouflage and markings, walk-around colour photographs and rare b+w archive photographs. It is an essential reading for aviation enthusiasts and scale aero-modellers.
