A detailed film history of the ‘other’ hero of the Battle of Britain. Highlights include exclusive interviews with pilots, outstanding dog-fight footage, IID ‘Tankbuster’ versions in action in the Western Desert, and rare combat footage of ‘Hurri-bombers’ striking at Japanese positions during the Burma Campaign, plus air-to-air and a walkaround with the BOBMF’s Hurricane PZ865. Text from producer: Aviation documentary examining one of the main British fighter aircraft of World War Two, the Hawker Hurricane. Less famous than the Spitfire, the Hurricane did in fact account for two-thirds of all German aircraft shot down in the Battle of Britain, and served with distinction throughout all theatres of war during the conflict. Includes archive footage of the aircraft in action, as well as interviews with veteran pilots.
