There were 14,533 Hawker Hurricanes produced and this one with the serial number PZ865, is now part of The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight. The first trials of the aircraft were in 1936 at Martlesham Heath by test pilot Sammy Wroath, there were 24 variants made of the Hurricane. This Hurricane was named “The Last of the Many “and first flew from Langley airfield in Buckinghamshire on the 22nd July 1944 and is now preserved at RAF Coningsby, Lincolnshire.

In 1950 it was moved to Dunsfold Aerodrome and was flown by Group Captain Peter Townsend in the Kings Cup Air Race in Hawkers Dark blue colouring with gold lettering. In 2010 the colour was changed again to that of 34 Squadron from South East Asia Command 1944. The PZ865 was a single engine aircraft using the Rolls Royce Merlin V12, giving it a top speed of 340mph at 21,000 ft and a range of 600 miles. With a wing span of 40ft with a maximum weight of 7670 lbs, the aircraft carried 4 x 20mm Hispano Mk2 cannons, 2 x 500lb bombs.

Some Hurricanes were converted to the Sea Hurricane and approximately 250 were used and catapulted off (CAMS) ships Catapult Armed and Merchant ships, but unfortunately couldn’t be recovered so had to return to land or abandoned into the sea. A total of 1715 Hurricanes were flown during the Battle of Britain, far more than any other British Fighters combined, they accounted for 80% of enemy planes destroyed between July and October 1940.
