Hawker Sea Fury

The Hawker Sea Fury heading out at the Palm Springs Air Museum yesterday to do a flight demonstration. This plane is fast and powerful! Top speed is 460mph and has a range of 700 miles. It was armed with 20mm cannons and could carry bombs or rockets. The pilot told me yesterday that he flew in at approximately 15,000 feet and a speed of 295 knots (340mph) for pretty much his entire flight from Ione California.
