Hawker Tempest Mk.V 'Le grand cirque' (The Big Show) (Royal Air Force-aircraft flown by W/Cdr P.H. Clostermann)

The Hawker Tempest Mk.V was the RAF's last piston-engined fighter used in the WWII, attaining great success in destruction of the German V-1 flying bombs. Developed in late 1941 from the troublesome Typhoon interceptor, the prototype flew in September 1942. The first order was for 400 Tempests, produced as the Mk.V Series 1 (100 a/c by Hawker) and Series 2 (300 a/c by Gloster); the first aircraft were completed in mid-1943. A further two orders for Hawker-built Mk.V Srs.2 aeroplanes raised the total of the Tempests produced to 801.
It was a single-seat monoplane aircraft, of all metal construction, powered by a Napier Sabre II engine.
