|tempest.gif||87445 bytes||This is a Tempest MkII powered by a Bristol Centaurus MkIV (not hercules) engine.
This makes it very difficult to differentiate from a Fury (same engine
and nearly same aircraft). All Tempests have a 4-bladed prop. At the rear of the exhaust
the Tempest is "clean". The Fury has a longer nose and the joint to the fuselage does
not look as clean.
Thanks for all people who have helped identify this aircraft.
