Hawker Hurricane, Supermarine Spitfire & Avro Lancaster - In Action (HD) Hawker Hurricane is a British single-seat fighter aircraft that was designed and predominantly built by Hawker Aircraft Ltd for the Royal Air Force (RAF). Although largely overshadowed by the Supermarine Spitfire, the aircraft became renowned during the Battle of Britain, accounting for 60% of the RAF's air victories in the battle, and served in all the major theatres of the Second World War. Supermarine Spitfire is a British single-seat fighter aircraft used by the Royal Air Force and many other Allied countries throughout the Second World War. The Spitfire continued to be used into the 1950s both as a front line fighter and in secondary roles. It was produced in greater numbers than any other British aircraft and was the only Allied fighter in production throughout the war.
Hawker Demon Hawker Demon first public display flight Hawker Demon G-BTVE (K8203) Date1937 made its first flight after an 18 year restoration on 23rd June 2009. Piloted by Stuart Goldspink the maiden flight lasted 20 minutes. The Demon owned by Demon Displays Ltd and restored by Skysort Engineering Ltd in the UK is painted in the colours of 64 Squadron RAF. K8203 is one of a batch of 37 built by Boulton Paul Aircraft Ltd of Wolverhampton in 1937. It was taken on charge by the RAF on 27th October 1937 and initially assigned to No 64 Squadron at RAF Church Fenton. It was later transferred to No 9 Maintenance Unit at RAF Cosford and then to No 9 Air Observers School (later renamed No 9 Bombing & Gunnery School) at RAF Penrhos. K8203 was struck off charge on 28th September 1940 but was then pensioned off as a ground training aid at No 1 Service Flying Training School at RAF Netheravon: its history then becomes more tenuous, but we understand that the aircraft was a finally disposed of to No 413 (Aldershot) Squadron of the Air Training Corps, probably during 1943. Acquired by Demon Displays from Guy Black in 1991, work commenced soon after. During the extensive restoration every component has been apart and many items have had to be made. The Kestrel V engine was overhauled by Vintage Engine Technology. It is the only flying Hawker Demon in the world.

Hawker Hurricane 25e BNF & PNP by E-flite For more information or to purchase these products please visit the following link: No fighter deserves more credit for saving Britain in its darkest hour than the Hawker Hurricane. Its simple construction allowed it to be manufactured in large numbers and it could be quickly repaired in the field using basic tools. And, despite being slower than the vaunted Spitfire, the Hurricane could out turn many of the enemy fighters it faced and bring its eight Browning machine guns to bear with devastating effect. This surprising maneuverability combined with its sheer numbers are two big reasons the humble Hurricane shot more enemy aircraft down in the Battle of Britain than any other Allied fighter. Now you can experience the thrill of flying the Hurricane with this remarkably scale park flyer from E-flite. Constructed of tough Z-Foam™ material, the Hurricane 25e BNF comes out of the box with a high-output brushless power system, digital servos, functional flaps. Even the authentic RAF No. 1 Squadron paint scheme has been applied. You also get the option of adding E-flite 15-25 Size 90-Degree Electric Retracts (EFLG200 -- sold separately). Installation is easy and when you're done you'll have a unique, scale warbird that will be the envy of the flying field. The Hawker Hurricane 25e, available in BNF and PNP, is a bigger, more powerful warbird with classic scale details and features.

Hawker Hurricane II The Hawker Hurricane was a British single-seat fighter aircraft designed and predominantly built by Hawker Aircraft Ltd. Some production of the Hurricane was carried out in Canada by the Canada Car and Foundry Co Ltd. The 1930s design evolved through several versions and adaptations, resulting in a series of aircraft which acted as interceptor-fighters, fighter-bombers (also called "Hurribombers"), and ground support aircraft. Further versions known as the Sea Hurricane had modifications which enabled operation from ships. The Hurricane was significant in enabling the Royal Air Force (RAF) to win the Battle of Britain of 1940, accounting for the majority of the RAF's air victories. About 14000 Hurricanes were built by the end of 1944 (including about 1200 converted to Sea Hurricanes, and about 1400 that were built in Canada), and served in all the major theatres of the Second World War. Design and development H is for Hurricane, British children's alphabet book from the Second World WarThe Hurricane was developed by Hawker Aircraft Ltd in response to the Air Ministry specification F.36/34, (modified by F.5/34) for a fighter aircraft built around the new Rolls-Royce engine, then only known as PV-12, later to become famous as the Merlin. At that time, RAF Fighter Command comprised just 13 squadrons, each equipped with either Hawker Furys, Hawker Hart variants, or Bristol Bulldogs -- all biplanes with fixed-pitch wooden propellers and non-retractable undercarriages.

Hawker Siddeley HS748 in Canada Few aircraft are more at home in the harsh arctic and the wilds of Northern Canada than the reliable, rugged Hawker Siddeley HS748. Many of these excellent, British-built propliners served in Canada over the years, as operators found them ideal on short, gravel strips. Their Dart engines boast plenty of power, and their 11000-pound payload is ideal for hauling cargo in Canada's remote North. They can also carry 44-50 passengers in warm comfort and speed. In this program, we join airline videographer Henry Tenby for 86 ear-piercing minutes of HS748 action. Bring your ear defenders and woolies, as we're going on three trips out of Yellowknife with First Air. You'll enjoy time on the flight deck, back in the cargo hold, as well as time in the passenger cabin, enjoying life on the HS748 as she earns her keep. We'll even help the locals unload hand-balmed cargo on arrival at Spence Bay. This program features lots of ear-splitting exterior footage showing HS748s at work with First Air and other operators as well, including Air North, Air Creebec, and Calm Air. High fuel prices are now bringing the days of HS748 operations to an end. This program forever preserves the memory of the HS748 in Canada, for generations to come!

Hawker Sea Hurricane 1b After the early success of the Hawker Hurricane in RAF service during the Battle of Britain, the Royal Navy decided to introduce the Hurricane as protection for the Atlantic convoys. These convoys were being monitored by FW-200 Condor aircraft, which operated far outside the range of land based aircraft, and co-ordinated the attacks of the U-boats on the convoys. An interim measure gave birth to the 'Hurricat', a modified Hurricane which was mounted on a catapult located on the bows of some modified merchant ships. The only modifications to the Hurricane for this role was the addition of catapult spools and as such were designated Sea Hurricane Ia's. These Sea Hurricanes were not ideal, as once they were launched they either had to make it back to a land base or ditch in the sea near to the convoy. An improved Sea Hurricane was the Ib, this had the catapult spools and an arrester hook to enable them to land back on merchant ships modified to have a small flight deck. Hurricane Z7015 was built by Canadian Car & Foundry at its Fort William, Ontario, plant during 1940 as a Mk I, after flight testing Z7015 was shipped to the UK. On June 27 1941 it was converted to Sea Hurricane Ib standard. Z7015 had a patchy wartime flying career, which ended in 1943, when it was delivered to Loughborough College as an instructional airframe. It remained there until it was transferred to the Shuttleworth Collection in 1961. Z7015 was used statically in the 'Battle of ...
Hawker Harts, N0. 12 sqdrn Andover Aerodrome 1931 Design and development In 1926, the Air Ministry stated a requirement for a high performance light-bomber, and which culminated in the choice of the Hawker Hart over other rivals (Avro Antelope and Fairey Fox) due to it being far cheaper to maintain, a vital aspect to a programme during defence budget constraints that the British armed forces faced during the 1920s. J9052, the prototype Hart, first flew in June 1928 and entered service with No. 33 Squadron RAF in 1930. Over 900 Harts of all types were built. It became the most widely used light-bomber of its time and the design would prove to be a successful one with a number of derivatives, including the Hawker Hind and Hector, being made. There were a number of Hart variants made, though only slight alterations were made. The Hart India was basically a tropicalised version of the aircraft; the Hart Special was another tropicalised version based on the Hawker Audax, a Hart variant, with desert equipment; a specialised Hart Trainer was also designed. Vickers built 114 of the latter model at Weybridge between 1931 and June 1936. The Hart was armed with a single forward .303 cal. Vickers machine gun and one rear .303 inch Lewis light machine-gun; the Hart also had a capacity to carry 520 lb (235 kg) of bombs. The Hart had a single 525 hp (390 kW) Rolls-Royce Kestrel IB 12-cylinder V-type engine; a speed of 184 mph (296 km/h) and a range of over 400 miles (640 km). It was much faster than contemporary fighters, an ...

Hawker Typhoon in action The Typhoon was a British single-seat fighter-bomber, produced by Hawker Aircraft starting in 1941. The first priototype first flew on February 24, 1940. Although it was intended to be a replacement for the Hawker Hurricane in the interceptor role, the Typhoon underwent a long gestation period, eventually evolving into one of the Second World War's most successful ground-attack aircraft. In RAF slang, the Typhoon was nicknamed the Tiffy. Find hours of nice videos about aviation history on www.all-. (The video shown here is only a fragment of the available film).

Hawker 200 At NBAA 2010 in Atlanta, Hawker Beechcraft announced a new variant on its Premier line, the Hawker 200. Shawn Vick gave AVweb a tour of the new aircraft.
Aero-TV at NBAA 2010: Hawker Plus Two - 'New' Jet, New King Air Hawker Responds Solidly To Market Input With New Birds DO NOT count Hawker Beech out in this tough market... as the company seems more than willing to do what it must to earn as much market share as possible... even to the point of putting the pressure on with expansive R&D efforts. Proof positive of that sentiment was Monday's official announcement of the newest member of its famed Hawker lineup the Hawker 200, as well as yet another variation on the venerable King Air. The Hawker 200 isn't a totally new concept... Evolving from the Premier II program, the Hawker 200 has all of the same characteristics and performance, but now comes with more capability than ever. HBC says the Hawker 200 is unique because it allows you to fly high and fast, without sacrificing comfort or cost. Flying at 450 knots and 43000 feet, the Hawker 200 can perform the light jet missions needed 95 percent of the time while going faster, higher, farther and offering more comfort with its class leading cabin diameter -- all for a lower operating cost per mile and a lower purchase price. In addition to its new winglets, new powerful Williams International FJ44-3AP engines, a gross weight increase and a higher ceiling; the Hawker 200 also features a MultiScan Weather Radar, ADS-B Out capability, and high reliability with a 400-hour inspection interval and 10-year composite airframe warranty. The Hawker 200 program is in an advanced state of development and on schedule. Following the first prototype ...
Hawker Nimrod Hawker Nimrod Biplane flown by Charlie Brown at Duxford Spring Airshow 2010 The Hawker Nimrod is a single seat biplane fighter which first flew in 1930. The Nimrod, was an adaptation of the Hawker Fury Fighter for operation from aircraft carriers. Its span is 3.5ft greater than that of the Fury. Later versions of the Nimrod had swept back wings, a larger tail and deck arrester gear. A twin float seaplane version was also built, designed for catapult launching from 'capital' ships. The type went into service with the Fleet Air Arm at the same time as the Osprey in 1931. Both types where represented in the mixed flight of new aircraft carried on HMS Eagle for demonstration at the British Empire Trade Exhibition, Buenos Aires, in March 1931. By the start of the Second World war only eigh*** examples of the Hawker Nimrod were left in service with 753, 755, 757, 759 and 780 Squadrons. The last aircraft in Fleet Air Arm service was S1582 with 753 Squadron who used it for daily weather checks until being 'paid off' in January 1942. The Fighter Collection's aircraft S1581, manufacturers serial no 41H.3041 was restored by Aero Vintage Ltd and first flew post restoration in July 2000. It is the only flying example of the Hawker Nimrod I worldwide and one of only two aircraft known to survive. This particular aircraft is believed to have served as late as 1938 on the carrier HMS Glorious, and is presented in the marking of 802 Squadron FAA.

Hawker Typhoon in Action In February 1940, the first N model, now known as the Typhoon, was delivered. Like the Tornado, the Typhoon was soon demonstrating its own problems, including vibrations from the engine causing the wing skinning to peel. The first production Mk IA was delivered in May 1941 with 12 Browning .303 guns, but this was followed quickly with the Mk IB with four Hispano 20 mm cannons. By this time the Spitfire Vs were encountering the superior Focke-Wulf Fw 190 in combat and suffering heavy losses, with the inevitable result that the Typhoon was rushed into squadron service (with Nos. 56 and 609 Squadrons) to counter the new German plane. Sadly, this decision proved to be a disaster, and several Typhoons were lost for mysterious reasons. Once again there was talk of killing the Typhoon. The cause of the tail failures was eventually identified only because one pilot managed to survive and return to tell his story. The problem was found to be caused by fatigue failure of the elevator mass-balance, allowing elevator-flutter to occur which was at its greatest when pulling out of a dive. Diving out of combat was the favourite escape manoeuvre for the Fw 190, which had a distinct speed advantage over the Spitfire. Against the Typhoon this manoeuvre should have proved deadly for the Fw pilots, but flutter problems turned the tables. As a "temporary" measure, rectangular strengthening "fishplates" were riveted around the fuselage/empennage joint, the site of the failures. These ...
