VP207 was 2nd Fury with the Napier Sabre 24 cylinder H section engine. Assembled post war out of spares.
The first Sabre Fury, LA610, was the fastest of all the Hawker piston engined fighters.
Pics taken at Radlett, the Handley Page works, in 1947.
The Fury is best known in it's naval version, the Sea Fury.

European engines turn opposite of American engines.

Well, it's a 24 cylinder engine by the looks of it, so it might be a Napier, or just possibly the RR Vulture which was infamous in its Avro Manchester installation - but the photo looks too late for a Vulture

Very interesting photo in that the engine is not a radial. Do you know or have any info on this aircraft? I also notice that the engine runs in reverse from the "normal"rotation. Allison maybe? Very unusual indeed.....
