‹ Return to Aviation History
It was great to see this old Hawker Hurricane at Cosford last weekend.
Not many WWII aircraft still flying have a history as distinguished as R4118; a true veteran of the Battle of Britain, this Hurricane accounted for 5 Luftwaffe aircraft.
great shot Ian,at the Air Museum near here they held Robot Wars last weekend !
Brilliant picture great detail.
cor that’s nice! what an incredible series.
love the second one down, looks as if i could make a run and jump for that open cockpit 😀
and the last shot – gorgeous profile shot, not often seen.
Great catch mate, I’d be well chuffed with that.
Great set of shots of a "proper" aircraft.!! Excellent work.
cracking shot fella
Excellent shot mate.
real class,ian…like this…
That’s unreal. Brilliant.
Was there a Lancaster there?
Many thanks everyone.
Yeah the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight appeared, though they were without their Hurricane, the engine was spewing oil apparently. But this one was a better sight!
I would love to just sit in the cockpit – with it on the ground. You’d be cleared for takeoff tho Ang!
Robot Wars! What’s not to like!
Amazing to see this Hurricane in flight!
Great shot, Ian. It looks like taken by his wingman 🙂
Top notch historic aircraft, wow!
Hey, glad you like the wisteria pic Ian, you are most welcome 😀
Aye this is a beaut of a machine . It sounded terrific and a true veteran. Terrific shots all Ian and very well presented.
Superbly caught Ian – there’s nothing like these old Fighters to stir the emotions 🙂
