The Sea Fury photographed at Oshkosh has one less prop blade than normal, which may indicate the presence of a substituted Wright Cyclone engine. This aircraft is owned by Peter Peoler in Columbus OH.

The Canada Aviation Museum in Ottawa Seafury was manufactured and passed to the RCN in 1948. During its navy service it crashed and was repaired before being sold by Crown Assets. Donated to the Museum in 1963, it was put on display in 1964 after restoration by Fairey Aviation Corp. and the RCN. Photos are copyright Bill Coffman.
