A rare and world-first opportunity exists to purchase a piece of war-time history next month. Bonhams & Goodman has consigned a fully restored 1940 Hawker Hurricane MkIIA, a former WWII fighter, for its Military and Aviation Collectables auction on 27 September 2009 in Melbourne. Further entries close Friday 28 August.

One of only eleven airworthy examples worldwide, the Hurricane is a survivor of four major battle campaigns during the Battle of France and the Battle of Britain. She was damaged and repaired several times before being struck by a shell in the winter of 1943 over the Murmansk area of the Russian Tundra. She was recovered from this area in 1991 and Wanaka-based aviation enthusiast, Sir Tim Wallis, purchased the plane a year later.


So Warbirds over Wanaka will no longer have a Hawker Hurricane!

That's a shame!
...Here it is at Wanaka in 2006 which I attended with my son.

...I'd reckon they will be wanting at least 1 million Pounds Sterling for it.

It is a shame as I was hoping to get to Wanaka in April to see it!

They are looking at 1 to 2 million pounds for it.

This is certainly a rara avis and is beyond price. There is only one airworthy, proven Battle of Britain Spitfire flying today. It is a MkII and a photo is in the anet database; sorry, I don't have the photo number handy.

Does anyone know if this aircraft was sold or not?

I was wondering about that myself. ...It's not being advertised in the lineup for the next Wanaka Airshow as seen below. ...Quoted from the Airshow website.

www.warbirdsoverwanaka.com

2010 Aircraft

We have almost finalised an exciting overseas aircraft for the flying programme, one that has not been in the country before. Keep an eye on the website for new announcements re the programme. Our collector’s poster will be available for sale prior to the Airshow and depicts this aircraft. Aircraft confirmations to date are the P-40 Kittyhawk (firing live guns), Corsair, Catalina, Spitfire, Harvards, de Havillands, Yaks, Mustang, some WW1 aircraft and more! All subject to availability of course.

It failed to meet its reserve. They were said to be in negotiations with the high bidder.

I suspect that as such it may still be flown at the show.

I hope it stays in that area....either New Zealand or Australia. Or....at least a Commonwealth country that participated in the Battle. Its really sad that the NZFPM is selling it.....I don't understand why, as its their most prized possession?


Proud to be an AVN Flight tech with 407 (LRP) Sqn, RCAF. I looove the Aurora/Orion.
