Another restored warbird takes to the air.

I prefer the WW2 Tempest. But still a great thing.


Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Someday your life will flash in front of your eyes. Make sure it is worth watching.

It's always good when another warbird returns to flight.

Beautiful restoration. Will make quite a formation with Sabre-engined Typhoon RB396 when that one is completed at some point down the road.

I have some Hawker stick time. 4h 20min in a Sea Fury back in 2019. Wonderful machines!


In all my years I've never seen the like. It has to be more than a hundred sea miles and he brings us up on his tail. That's seamanship, Mr. Pullings. My God, that's seamanship!
