Hawker Typhoon, 1945 - Note the black spinner, the 2nd TAF [tactical airforce] painted their spinners black in 1945, they had been sky previously.  Note pilot in front in khaki battledress as well, I think for ease of concealment if shot down, and the 'erk' in the background holding a fire extinguisher, the Sabre engine engine used the Coffman starter system, which if didn't start up the engine first time it caused it burst into flames as it was primed full of petrol!
