The Hawker Tempest entered RAF service with No 150 Wing in the spring of 1944. This is JN766/ SA-N of No 486 Squadron at Castle Camps on 8 April. The Tempest V (the earlier marks did not go into production or appeared too late for war service) was faster than any other Allied or German piston-engined fighter below 20,000ft
