UK - Air Force
Hawker Typhoon Mk1B
Hendon (closed)
UK - England, April 13, 2010
Remark
Photographer
MN235 Of the 3,317 Typhoons built this is the sole surviving complete example. The type first flew in 1940 and was intended as a replacement for the Hurricane. In 1943 ground attack rockets were fitted and the type became extremely successful in that role. They must have been a magnificent sight in the air. This example was assessed by the USAF in 1944 and it was presented to the RAF Museum by the Smithsonian in 1967
