Sort of a “super” Typhoon, the Hawker Tempest had unbelievable technical qualities for a World War 2 airplane. Starting in 1944, it became what was probably the best British propeller fighter aircraft of the war. Thanks to its capacities, the Tempest was responsible for the loss of twenty German Me 262 (the first operational jet aircraft).

Hawker Typhoon, 1945 - Note the black spinner, the 2nd TAF [tactical airforce] painted their spinners black in 1945, they had been sky previously. Note pilot in front in khaki battledress as well, I think for ease of concealment if shot down, and the 'erk' in the background holding a fire extinguisher, the Sabre engine engine used the Coffman starter system, which if didn't start up the engine first time it caused it burst into flames as it was primed full of petrol!
