12/31/2007. This Hurricane was first flown January 1, 1944. In June
1957 it was transferred to the RAF Battle Of Britain Memorial Flight.
After an engine failure it crashed at RAF Wittering on September 11,
1991. Rebuilt it flew again in September 1998.
The second aircraft in this photo
was the last Hurricane built, s/n PZ865 (view also
photo 2719). It is
finished in the markings of Squadron Leader Robert "Bob" Stanford Tuck
(one of the leading British aces) while flying with No.257 Fighter
squadron, late 1940-early 1941. What seems to be a white line below
the canopy is a row of over 21 swastika victory markings.
