    Well-known aviation enthusiast Kermit Weeks (Fantasy of Flight, Polk City, FL, USA) has a Tempest V restoration underway in the UK.

    There's are also at least two Tempest II restorations to airworthy condition in New Zealand. Here's one of them.

    Love the Tempest and Typhoon, although the beauty of the Tempest somewhat ruined by the latter radial engines.

    You can't deny that its progeny, the Sea Fury, was one of the most elegant piston engined aircraft around.
