Photographer's Remark

Powered by a powerful Bristol Centaurus radial, the Tempest II came too late to see action in WWII. Further development led to the Sea Fury. PR536 served with the RAF in India and was transferred to the Royal Indian Air Force as HA457. This is a composite airframe with the forward fuselage of PR536.
