I would've loved to see either the Typhoon or Tempest in flying condition at a airshow.

In June 2009 Kevin Strickson reports:



"Just been over to Wickenby Wheels and Wings and she was outside with an engine in place. Unfortunately not with the renovated engine. She is said to fly in 2010 "

Yeah, we're lucky to have some lovely still-flyable craft.

And I'm damn lucky to have a Spitfire fly over frequently. In fact, I was sitting up in my bedroom earlier this morning and heard that beautiful Rolls Royce drone in the distance. Unmistakable and wonderful!

The one that probally would fly in 2010 is a Tempest II

on the same page there's also a Tempest V under restoration to flying condition.

http://www.hawkertempest.se/EJ693.htm

hopefully she also will hit the skies again in the near future.
