History

The ISS (Iraqi Single Seater) Fury was an export land based version of the Hawker Sea Fury ordered for the Iraqi Air Force. In 1946, Iraq bought its first 30 Fury F.1 fighters and two Fury T.52 trainers. These aircraft were operated by Nos. 1 and 7 Squadrons. Iraqi Furies did not take part in the first weeks of the 1948 Arab-Isralei War. However, after newly-received Isralei Boeing B-17’s started bombing Arab cities, the governments of Syria and Transjordan demanded that the Iraqis deploy their Furies. Hence, six aircraft from No. 7 Squadron were transferred to Damascus in late July 1948. The Iraqi Furies didn’t see much action during that war, because of the limited amount of ammunition were flown, and no air combats with Israeli aircraft were reported.

An additional 20 Fury F.1s were acquired in 1951, which enabled No. 4 Squadron to start operating the type Iraqi Furies saw action during the numerous Kurdish Uprisings in the North of the country, throughout the 1960s. They notably performed close air support missions, as well as attacks on villages, rebel-controlled roadblocks, and troop concentrations.

In 1979, American aircraft collectors Ed Jurist and David Tallichet purchased 24 ISS Furies from the Iraqi government and shipped them to Orlando, Florida, USA where they were offered for sale. The current owner purchased the complete project and brought it home where he disassembled the project for inspection. Over the last 30 years he has added many NOS (New Old Stock) parts to the project, probably 50% of a second project. Two of the major restoration shops in the USA have said that this is the best unrestored Sea Fury / Fury project on the planet.
