Hawker Hurricane Mk I - RAF No.69 Sqn, V7101, George Burges, Malta, May 1941
World War II

Historical Note:



Based on the Fury biplane and designed by Sydney Camm as a monoplane fighter, the Hurricane was first flown on November 6th, 1935. With its wide-set landing gear, easy handling, reliability, and stable gun platform, the Hurricane was suitable for a variety of different roles such as intruder, ground strafing and night fighter. Steel-tube construction meant cannon shells could pass right through the wood and fabric covering without exploding. The Hurricane underwent many modifications during its lifetime, including an upgraded Merlin engine and interchangeable multi-purpose wings, staging twelve 7.7mm guns and two 40mm anti-tank guns and carrying two 500lb bombs.

Hawker Hurricane - The Ultimate Home Fighter (11:10)
As World War 2 was about to break out and the Nazis posed a significant threat to the entire European continent, Hawker Aircraft was pursuing a private venture to create the ultimate fighter, one that could face the imposing German Messerschmitts. At the time, Britain was reluctant to modernize its Air Force fleet, still relying heavily on the biplane. But aircraft developers were ready to kick off the era of the monoplane. The Hurricane then gloriously emerged, and it played a pivotal role during the Battle of Britain in the summer of 1940. While the Supermarine Spitfire is usually credited with the victory, it was really the Hurricane that bore the brunt of the fight. As Winston Churchill would say in a speech offering a tribute to Royal Air Force pilots who bravely fought in the decisive battle: "Never in the field of human conflict was so much been owed by so many to so few."--- Join Dark Skies as we explore the world of aviation with cinematic short documentaries featuring the biggest and fastest airplanes ever built, top-secret military projects, and classified missions with hidden untold true stories. Including US, German, and Soviet warplanes, along with aircraft developments that took place during World War I, World War 2, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Cold War, the Gulf War, and special operations mission in between. As images and footage of actual events are not always available, Dark Skies sometimes utilizes similar historical images and footage for dramatic effect and soundtracks for emotional impact.
