    Fury Trainer

    The Iraqi Fury thread got me digging through my files for the one trainer that was shipped off to Iraq to Pakistan. I'm not sure whether this is the one but this one sure has an odd conversion done to it.

    If anyone has any pics of the RIAF or the RPAF i'll be most interested.

    That aircraft could be the third Iraqi two seater of an order for four, one was diverted to Pakistan and the other to the Royal Navy.
    Early two seaters had seperate canopies but airflow caused the rear canopy to collapse so were later modified to the style we know on RN a/c.
    So my choice is IDT3/263 delivered to Iraq 21/5/48 although things are far from clear.

    EDIT The first picture of Ztango's is the Fury diverted to Pakistan from the Iraq order, that too had the early canopy style. Was to be IDT2/262 with Iraq then K850 for Pakistan. Delivered 3/11/48.

    Looks a little like a Scouse 'cut and shut' job with that canopy!

    you are probably right Mike.. which in a way indicates that the one forwarded on from Iraq was probably sprayed in the Iraqi scheme. Which makes at least 2 Fury trainers in Pakistan (if the picture was indeed taken at Langley). Does anyone have info on the Furys & Typhoons that were sent to the RPAF and any pictures? Thanks

    One of the fury trainers of the RPAF crashed and burned out in 1951

    you are welcome ztango.

    IIRC a photo of the crashed and burnt out Fury was also published in the pakistani book from where i got the info from.

    I'm keeping well out of this one!

    PS I rather seem to recall that in the early 70s a Liverpool company (AP?) was making aftermarket wheels for Indian MiG-21s. Rather flies in the face of the predicatable jokes, doesn't it?
