Hawker Hurricane

 

Responsible for 60% of the R.A.F. victories in the Battle of Britain, the Hurricane is an extremely rare sight today, but a welcome and familiar one in WWII.

 

It shares the same Rolls Royce Merlin engine with the Spitfire, developing 1,400hp in this case.

 

In the Battle of Britain, Hurricanes far outnumbered Spitfires, today the reverse is true. There are increasing numbers of Spitfires in the air and fewer Hurricanes, make sure to see one of the very few, expected to display on both days.
