WG655 was delivered on 9-10-1951, the early years were spent with 781 Squadron at their Lee on Solent base, 1957 saw a move to Germany and a new home at München Riem airport where it carried out TT duties for the Ministry of Defence, the time in Germany came to an end on the 12th November 1975 when it undertook the last flight of a German Sea Fury. During 1976 it was withdrawn from service and shipped back to the Royal Navy at Yeovilton where it remained until 1990.
The next 18 years were spent in New Zealand then America until finally making its way back to England when Duxford’s The Fighter Collection purchased it from Sanders Aeronautics based in California. Since then the original Centaurus engine has been replaced with the Pratt & Whitney R2800 which powers a reliable 2000hp to the four blade propeller, originally from a Grumman Guardian.
