History Documentary hosted by Various narrators and published by Others in 1999 - English narration
The Hurricane was one of the most versatile fighters of World War II and the first eight-gun monoplane fighter produced in Britain. This unique video features aerobatic manoeuvres similar to those employed by Battle of Britain pilots in the heat of the dogfight. The pilots-eye-view from in-cockpit cameras show you what it is really like to fly the 1942 Mark XII Hawker Hurricane. We also visit the evocative Spitfire and Hurricane Memorial Building and interview museum staff, former Hurricane pilots and restorers. Plus you can enjoy detailed technical close-ups, takeoffs, landings and superb ground-to-air aerobatic footage. A fitting tribute to an aircraft which truly deserves its place in aviation history.
