Product description

DVD - It's eight wing-mounted Colt-Brownings spitting flame, the Hawker Hurricane swooped to dispatch over two-thirds of all enemy aircraft destroyed in the Battle of Britain. Courageous squadron commander Douglas Bader, I4 - kill hero Cobber Kain, Ginger Lacey - the top Battle of Britain ace with 18 victims - and many other RAF pilots owed their reputations and their lives to this toughest mount of all. The Hurricane was outnumbered but never outclassed, designed to hit the enemy hard, absorb tremendous punishment yet live to fight another day. Featuring colour footage of the last surviving aircraft, alongside original combat film. This is the definitive documentary of a fighter plane that truly changed the course of history.

BOOK - The Hurricane Story follows the development of the Hurricane from fighter to bomber and from ship-borne fighter to ground-attack specialist, continuing the tale from the Battle of Britain to the end of the Second World War. The book features photographs from all theatres in which the Hurricane fought and details post-war preservations, including the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and a listing of preserved airframes.
