This Hawker Sea Fury is an FB.11 fighter-bomber that saw virtually no military service. Produced in 1951 and designated for a foreign military contract that was cancelled, it was released to a museum and later civilian owners in the mid 1960s. It was donated to the Commemorative Air Force in 2005, and is currently based in Memphis, TN.
The Yak-9 arrived on the Russian Front in 1942, in time to make an impact on the Battle of Stalingrad. It was heavily armed, and served in fighter escort and attack roles. Over 16, 700 were produced, including post-war export models.
