Hawker Sea Fury FB.11

@ Charles Schulz Airport, Santa Rosa, CA

August 2011

Sea Fury “Argonaut” sits under cloud cover waiting for the sun at the annual Wings Over Wine Country airshow.  This aircraft was delivered to the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1947 before being acquired by the Sanders family.  The original engine has been replaced with a Pratt & Whitney R-2800.  I do love the look of the five-blade prop on the original Bristol Centaurus engines.
