The first flight of the Hawker Fury I took place in March 1931. Because of the Great Depression
and the high cost of the Fury only 118 were produced for the RAF. It was the first RAF
operational aircraft to exceed 200 mph in level flight. In May 1931 No. 43 Squadron was the first
to receive the new aircraft. Starting in 1936 five RAF squadrons received the new improved Fury
II. Seven foreign air forces ordered the Fury II. In 1939 the RAF Furys were replaced by
Gladiators and Hurricanes.
After occupying Austria in March 1938 Hitler made demands that part of Czechoslovakia that
formerly was German territory and was taken away as a result of WWI, be returned to Germany
or he would invade. In early September 1938 Prime Ministers of Britain and France met with Hitler
and reached an agreement that Czechoslovakia cede the Sudetenland to Germany thus avoiding
war. The Czechs reluctantly agreed and there was a meeting in Munich on September 29, 1938
where after hearing that Czechoslovakia had agreed Hitler added new demands that German
troops be allowed to occupy the territory and again Hitler was appeased and we all know what
happened from that point on.
