Fairey Firefly NF.5

The Fairey Firefly NF.5 was the night-fighter version of the multi-purpose Firefly Mk.5. It was very similar to the FR.5, but with flame damping exhaust manifolds, the ARI 5284 radio-altimeter and the ARI 5664 rear warning radar, which indicated when another aircraft was approaching from behind by ringing a bell in the pilot's cockpit.
