Hawker Hurricane 1 (Replica)


The Hurricane went into service with the RAF in 1937 and proved to be an excellent all-round fighter-interceptor, particularly in the Battle of Britain during which it claimed 80% of the RAF's kills. This replica Hurricane painted in the colours of 'P3873' of the Royal Canadian Air Force in which Hon. Hartland de M Molson OC OBE KstJ was shot down during the Battle of Britain. It is now the Gate Guardian at Elvington.
