Description: The Hawker Hurricane was the first British single-engine fighter and the first single wing aircraft
with retractable landing gear as well as an enclosed cockpit and 8 machine guns. The Hurricane
went into operational service in December 1937 with the RAF 111 Squadron. The Hurricane is
usually over looked as a major player in the BoB because of the Spitfire but 80% of the 1,792
German aircraft shot down were because of the Hurricane. There were 14,533 Hurricanes
produced in all variants.

Hurricane IIC PZ865 was completed in July 1944 as the last of 14,533 Hurricanes to be built and
was given the inscription “Last of the Many” that it wore for several years. PZ865 was retained by
the company for trial work. In 1950 PZ865 was given a civil registration of G-AMAU and in 1972
the aircraft was given to the RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight at RAF Coningsby where it was
refurbished and flies as 1944 HW840 / EG-S piloted by Canadian Flt J. Whalen DFC of the SEA
Command.
