Hurricane – Legend of the Battle of Britain
Hawker Hurricane is an unique aeroplane. She did not have the beauty and performance of the Spitfire, and she was not the most modern plane of her time. And when in the summer of 1940 she stood in the way of the Luftwaffe air raids in the very heart of England, her career as a fighter was coming to an end. And that’s when, in this darkest hour for the free world, she took all the burden on herself. Hurricane fighters for the first in the Wartime stopped and repulsed the armed forces of Nazi Germany. Immediately after the Battle of Britain, Hurricane was replaced as a fighter by the Spitfire and moved to the role of an assault aircraft. Her merit, however, has not been entirely forgotten.
…Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few…
Sir Winston Churchill, 21 August 1940
