    Hawker Tempest on the move?

    Just spotted MW763 at Grantham North Services at lunchtime. Passed it again going south with the wings/2nd engine on another flatbed going past Stansted turnoff. Going to North Weald??

    Is it Weald aviation who service the Rnhf sea fury??

    Would make sense as they have experience with the mighty Centaurus??

    Intriguing!!!!

            I don't know who the new owner is. I know it's been for sale for a while.

                    Different Tempests. MW763 is a Mk2. The other is a Mk5. That said, using one to build the other would save a bit of time to say the least!

                          My, that was quick!!
                          Yes, it does have a new owner and is to be completed to fly by Weald Aviation, who as Mark said, maintain the Sea Fury T20 for the navy heritage trust.
                          Will post picks as the dust settles. Been a busy few days

                                  Er.....anybody notice anything strange about that engine? But great pictures; thanks for posting!

                                  This is all very exciting; the prospect of something genuinely different in the skies. Can anybody give us a brief history of this aircraft; I'm not even sure what mark we are looking at?

                                  Sorry, reading above, MW763 is a mark 2.....so Centaurus engine then?

                                    I think the Centaurus and the wings were on a different truck. I'm guessing the P&W was sold with it.

                                      Confirmed I caught up with the convoy as I turned off the M11 at the Stansted turnoff. The wings and engine were on a second flatbed trailer
