Photo Comment

Apparently originally a Fury FB.10 two-seater delivered to Iraq as '324' in 1949. Debut in these colours last year. Ex N58SF/N1324 and rebuilt with a Wright R-3350, now masquerading as WH589 (the actual Sea Fury with this serial flies as N985HW and was in the UK in the 1970s as CF-CHB/G-AGHB)
