First flown in 1935, the Hawker Hurricane is a British single-seat fighter aircraft that was designed and built primarily for service with the Royal Air Force (RAF). Along with the Supermarine Spitfire, the Hurricane played a critical role during the Battle of Britain (1940-41) and in the defense of Malta (1941-42). The Hurricane inflicted 60 percent of the losses sustained by the Luftwaffe during World War II, and the aircraft fought in all the major theaters.
This aircraft is on loan from the Dakota Territory Air Museum.
