Super great shot!
500mm, so that's 750mm (eqv) there!
Thanks for sharing!

Thank you for that one. The Hawker Hurricane is one of my favourite planes ever

For those interested, this link shows to a forum with some pictures of the restoration in 2006/2007. The first flight - at least in these colours - was in November 2007 (your Exif shows the picture was taken in 2007, not 2006). It seems this mark XII is in the colours of the IIb flown by US ace Lance C. Wade. I thought there was something missing with the picture and I think I'm missing the dust filter the Hurricanes in desert colours usually have.

To bad this Hurricane isn't airworthy. According to this source it is "Stored awaiting repairs" after a collision with a Spitfire and (as they say on Wikipedia) "damage by Hurricane Ike (no relation)"

Just felt I had to share my searching after seeing this picture. Once again, thank you for sharing.

You are correct re: the Hurricane was taken in 2007... It is owned by Lone Star Flight Museum, Galveston TX, they paint their A/C in the markings of Texans who flew them; in this case Lance Wade flew with the RAF, though he was an American from TX. The airplane is not correct for the markings, the MK XII was a Canadian recovery that came from Newfoundland, a trainer if I recall correctly. Too bad about the crash, and I think they want to sell the project rather than invest any further in it. The chief pilot told me it no longer fit the museum's goals and was a bit impractical to operate, with its short range, and snug cockpit.

I had no idea there were still airworthy examples of these. Weren't they barely controllable untamed beasts when new? How the hell do they keep them in flying condition 70 years on? (Or I suppose 60 years on when this photograph was made.)

Brilliant airplane pictures, overall. You have the world's best job.

Thank you Dave,

The airplane was more successful than you may have read, but yes, it was a handful to many of the seriously under-trained pilots who flew it. In the proper hands with a good understanding of its under developed technology, and limitations, it was devastatingly effective.

The flying examples you see now days (three) are modern replicas with modern (J-85) engines. Physically the same as the original in most ways, yet still certified as experimental.

There is a single original 262 being restored to fly, owned by by a large collection in Seattle. It will fly with original Jumo 004 turbojets re-manufactured with modern metalurgy...$$$...

That's really rather lovely.

One as a swap for our Hurricane in the USA:

I'm surprised more RFF'ers don't go to Shuttleworth...

This is what our son will soon be flying...he just moved to Cherry Point, NC.
It's a great plane and he's excited to fly this one...Harrier pilots will be the first to transition to the F-35 once they get them straightened out and enough built...
