A TANGMERE HAWKER FURY FLIES AGAIN

On 6 August, a Hawker Fury Mk1 (K5674) in No 43 Squadron markings flew for the second time from Goodwood airfield since being restored by Retrotec Ltd to flying condition. The aircraft, owned by the Historic Aircraft Collection Ltd, had made its first flight a week before on 30 July.

K5674 was the personal aircraft of Flying Officer (later Air Chief Marshal) Frederick Rosier when he served at RAF Tangmere with No 43 Squadron for three years before the war. David Rosier, his son, was present to see the aircraft fly again and brought along his father’s log book which he handed over to the pilot, Flight Lieutenant Charlie Brown, to take with him on the one hour test flight.

A number of members of the Museum were present to see this historic occasion and, after returning to the Museum, were able to see K5674 flying overhead, some 73 years since a Hawker Fury flew from RAF Tangmere.
