Formerly the RAF's MW848 and delivered to India in 1948, this is one of 11 (or possibly 12) Tempests surviving worldwide. Sister-ship HA622 was last noted as a decoy in 1988. Looking good here but not too sure about that tailwheel! Seven Tempests were eagerly snapped up in the late 70s when auctioned off by India.
