The Fairey Flycatcher was a British single-seat biplane fighter aircraft made by Fairey Aviation Company which served in the period 1923 to 1934. The Flycatcher was a remarkable design for its time and was one of the earliest aircraft specifically designed for operation from aircraft carriers — flying from all the British carriers of its era. Very popular with pilots, they were easy to fly and very maneuverable. It was in the Flycatchers that the Fleet Air Arm developed the combat tactics used in the Second World War.
The Hawker Fury was a British single seat biplane fighter aircraft used by the Royal Air Force in the 1930s. It was a fast, agile aircraft, and holds the distinction of being the first interceptor in RAF service to be capable of more than 200 MPH. It had highly sensitive controls which gave it superb aerobatic performance. It had a climb rate of almost 2,400 ft/min (730 m/min) powered by a 525 hp/391 kW Kestrel engine and was armed with two 303 Vickers Guns, with 6000 rounds of ammunition for each.
