F-AZXL is one of the 55 land-based Hawker Fury fighters supplied to the Iraqi Air Force in the early 1950s. Known as a “Baghdad” Fury this version has no arrestor hook or folding wings. Painted in spurious Australian Navy markings this example has been fitted with a Wright R-3550 engine and a four-blade propellor instead of the original Bristol Centaurus and five-blader. This machine, now owned and flown by Christophe Jacquard, is pictured taxying in at the Duxford Flying Legends Air Display in 2009.
