Here's a Hawker Sea Fury Youtube video showing the fighter running up it's Napier Sabre engine and doing several flybys at an air show. One more Youtube Sea Fury Video of a Fury doing an engine startup and takeoff. The sound is somewhat muted on this video. This Sea Fury Youtube footage is much better quality and shows the Fury taxiing, taking off, and doing flybys.

This particular Hawker Sea Fury was privately owned and since I visited the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum it was sold off to a buyer overseas.
