From Canada...First time I see a Spit with Hurri exhausts stacks...very sad view for a BF-109 pilot in his poor rear view mirror must have been then...

Excellent angle and lighting of the most beautiful a/c ever made! Visitor from Canada, those double-exhausts were not unique to the Hurricane; all ealy, single stage Merlins (initially) had them, so Defiants, Fulmars, Beaufighters, Hurricanes, Spitfire I-V and early Seafires, although some had smaller exhausts fitted later to ease carrier landings

Reminds me of Bob van der Stok. He was flying a spit over Belgium as well in 1942 but was shot down after some 5-10 victories in his career till then (also with Fokkers of Dutch AF May 1940)... parachuted, picked up by Germans... brought to (eventually) Stalag Luft, then played a major role in preparations of and actually escaped in what became known as 'The Great Escape'... he was one out of only three persons that actually escaped to unoccupied territory (England, via Spain and Gibraltar in his case), out of I believe 72 that got out of the camp.
