    Nice!

    That's the model with the big air scoop for desert warfare isn't it?

    My friend, you're confusing the Spitfires and Hurricanes fitted with either the Abu Seir or Vokes air filters with the Typhoon.

    The reason the Typhoon and later Tempest V (which began life as a design entitled "Typhoon II") and later Fury (properly, "Fury II", which began life as a design entitled "Tempest II") have the radiator intake under the nose is the Napier Sabre series engines which powered each. Without going into too much technicality here, various marks and models of Sabre power various models and marks of the airframes I've listed above. In a sort of poetic irony, the only ones of the series to see service in a desert environment were the Sea Fury in Iraq, and the earliest of the Tempest Mk IIs in Pakistan, both of those being (radial, by Bristol) Centaurus-powered. Neither aircraft had been designed with desert service in mind, but both were sold off postwar by a Britain desperate to gain overseas funds, somehow, anyhow.

    The last of the Sea Furies was not sold off from Iraq until about 1990, and in fact as late as 1995 or 1996 there were still 3 Sea Furies allegedly rotting away in the open in the corner of a disused airfield just outside Baghdad. These had been seen and photographed by recon teams operating out of Baghram Airbase.

    All of which explains why the huge intakes below the Sabre engines should not be confused with either Abu Seir or Vokes "Aerovee" filters.

    Clave my friend, as ever : brilliant and beautiful work.
    I truly enjoy your magnificent images, and am forever glad to see them.

    Warm, Kind, and Respectful Regards my friends, Uyraell.

    The Typhoon family was probably the last expression of successful piston-engined airframe development in the UK, in much the same ways as the Corsair II (the Jet-engined Corsair A7 of the Viet Nam era should properly be called Corsair III) FG2 and Thunderbolt J and P51H and P82 are the last expressions of the same in the USA.

    There is a certain refined yet brutish functional beauty to each airframe, such that I doubt such syntheses will ever again recur.

    I'm in agreement with you Nick my friend, the Typhoon is certainly a rugged beauty.
    Roland Beaumont certainly enjoyed flying the Typhoon. Other pilot accounts I have read express the same enjoyment.

    Churchill my friend, you're very welcome.

    Note the Typoon was the first to come out with the recognitions bands way before D-Day.

    Yes, correct.
    But that is because stripeless Typhoons were being shot at by both Anti-Aircraft guns and other non-Typhoon aircraft, whose crews seemed to insist that the Typhoon was somehow an FW190 variant, despite the disparity in size and markings.
    Thus, as with the P47 receiving white recognition bands around the engine cowling and vertical tail, the Typhoon becomes the first British aircraft to receive comparable recognition stripes.

    In both cases, a sufficiently scathing comment on the prevailing standards of aircraft recognition/aircraft identification.

    Thanks for the kind comments!

    The Napier Sabre engine was huge - 24 cylinders/36 Litre/2,200hp which is why the Typhoon needed such a large radiator.

    Napier Sabre series was a development of the Napier Lion Series of engines, which had powered several notable aircraft.
    Probably the best known then, (but least-known now) was the Napier Heston Racer. Any researcher will readily discern in the Heston Racer certain similarities to the Typhoon, especially in the fuselage forward of the empennage and in the close-fitting cowling of the massive engine.
    Visually at least, the source of some of Sir Sydney Camm's inspiration for the design of the Hawker Typhoon is rather obvious.
    Nor should a researcher ignore the fact that Hawker Aircraft had had a hand in the construction of the Heston, along with certain consultative work from Teddy Petter (fuselage/wingroot joint fillets) and Tom Fendelton of Glosters (engine mounts and cowling internal stressing), later themselves involved in construction of both Typhoon and Tempest.
    Nor should it be forgotten that Lanoe Hawker had himself urged the Hawker board to contribute to the Heston as "a useful exercise in modern engineering and construction techniques".

    All of which is, imho, contributory to the both troubled history and later unbridled success of the Typhoon and Tempest.

    The sole surviving example of the type rests in the RAF Museum; this a/c was supplied to the Americans as an evaluation sample and was swapped back by the Smithsonian some years ago.
