The Spotlight series in the latest edition of Flypast focuses on the Hawker Sea Fury, one of the fastest single piston-engined piston-powered fighters ever built. The feature follows the standard format with accounts of its operational service and I have contributed an article, Fast and Furious, on the men who flew the aircraft, selecting three whose experiences are very different.
- Alan ‘Spiv’ Leahy who earned the DSC for operations over Korea
- Neville Duke who established world speed records en-route to Egypt and Pakistan
- Pete Sheppard who flew many hours as the Royal Navy Historic Flight’s Sea Fury pilot
