But Sir, a

fighter??? Smoky truck that took two counties of airspace to turn. Nimble, Not. OTOH, a friend flew FAC in one, a perfect target it was.

Erm Mr D, a rather unfortunate choice of piccie here....if that tail number is the same as the serial number XV 431, one, er, picked up the remains of a short but eventful last trip of said beast out of Bruggen...well as far as the end of the runway and Hill 60 (ish) area anyway. Only time, thankfully, I ever saw Martin Baker's products work as advertised.

One doesn't wish to disagree with a lady....however...have to say the Toom and the Bucc are equal Beatriz .....

Perhaps not the best looking fighter, not well known in the European Theater of World War II, but probably the best fighter in the Pacific. In fact some have claimed that it won the air war in the Pacific.

The Grumman F-6F Hellcat.

Don't give me a P-38, with props that counter-rotate
They'll loop, roll and spin but they'll soon auger in
Don't give me a P-38!

Chesty, I think you'll find that your second picture was actually designed by a chap with the surname of Isaacs, not Hawker.

The real Fury was somewhat larger.

Ah, Beatriz, not only do we share the same taste in music, but aircraft too! Le beautiful, ze buccaneer!

Some day one shall save enough money to go to Thunder City. And one shall pick the Bucc over the Hunter and the Lightning.

Loki - I like the Fishbed too The modern upgrades are pretty lethal, but the old ones (minus the spine) look the best.

RollingThunder - nah, among Hawker's products, THIS one was the best:
