This is a original Hurricane, and it's had 4 replacement Engines, 6 wings 2 new skins and 3 undercarriage. But it's as built, apart from the GPS, radio and Fuel system.
Sir but that means only the Serial number is original? Erm wish you had not spotted that

You see it can be done, 3 hours and not once you looked at Instagram, Tic Toc, Twitter or Facebook.

It was a time of great capability, a time of great teamwork, a time of great strength, and nobody wore a hi-viz vest.

Thanks for telling us about the Battle of Britain. But did we win, or was it the Communists?

Ok, so before we break up the visit, we want to know which one of you thieving toe rags cut a souvenir section out of the fabric of this Hurricane.

...and of course, the technology that built the Hurricane was further developed until we had such brilliant aircraft as the HS121Trident.
