Description

Sky is not so good I know...
U.S. Marine Corps mechanics service a Royal Navy Hawker Sea Fury FB.11 (s/n WE790). According to the original caption this was a Royal Australian Navy aircraft. RAN 805 and 808 Squadrons operated from the aircraft carrier HMAS Sydney (R17) off Korea between 4 October 1951 and 27 January 1952. In the background is a Vought F4U-4 Corsair. Unusual is the lack of any tail code on either aircraft.
Original caption: "BROTHERS IN ARMS--When a Royal Australian Navy aircraft was forced down at a Marine airbase in Korea, the Leatherneck mechanics turned to help the pilot get his ship back into the air. Shown here, several mechanics swarm over the machine as curious onlookers stand by."
