SN330, S/Ldr Colin H. Macfie, CO of No. 3 Squadron, Wunstorf, Germany, 2nd half of 1947

Tempest serial number SN330 missed the wartime

service. In November 1945 it was dispatched to

Germany and in January 1946 assigned to the

No. 80 Squadron. During the following month it

was damaged and returned to the Great Britain

for repairs at Hawker company. After the

repairs were completed, it was delivered to the

No. 3 Squadron sporting the overall coat of the

aluminum paint and new, type D cockades. J5-H

code letters were painted in the unit’s traditional

green color. S/Ldr Colin Hamilton Macafie chose

this aircraft as his commander’s plane. In May

1948 the Tempests were replaced by Vampires

F.1 and SN330 was returned to the Great Britain

for storage. In November 1950 it was sent for the

scrap metal.
