Viewed as a thoroughbred fighter, only the best pilots of the RAF elite squadrons were selected to fly the Hawker Fury, which was seen to represent the effectiveness and professionalism of the modern Royal Air Force. No.1 Squadron began receiving their Hawker Fury’s in February 1932 and this early example is presented with the larger pre-1934 roundels and rudder stripes as well as having the flight’s colors painted on the top fuselage decking. As the ‘C’ Flight Commander’s aircraft, it also carries the flight’s yellow color on the fin, spinner and wheel covers giving this handsome aircraft an even more striking appearance.Die-cast metal fuselage

The Hawker Fury was a British biplane fighter used by the Royal Air Force in the 1930s. It was originally named the Hornet and was the counterpart to the Hawker Hart light bomber. The Fury was a fast, agile aircraft and holds the distinction of being the RAFs first operational fighter able to exceed 200 mph in level flight. First flown on March 25, 1931, the Fury I entered service with No. 43 Squadron in May 1931. But, because of the Depression, only a small number of Fury Is were ordered, equipping two more squadrons. The Fury II entered service in 1937 and increased the total number of squadrons to six. The Fury remained in service with RAF Fighter Command until January 1939, by which time it had been largely replaced with Gloster Gladiators and other types, such as the Hawker Hurricane.
