Description

One of military aviation's most outstanding machines, the Hurricane opened a new era in R.A.F. fighter equipment, being both the first interceptor monoplane to be adopted by that service and its first combat aircraft to exceed 300 m.p.h. in level flight. Capable of absorbing a tremendous amount of battle damage, it was numerically the most important British fighter in service until the end of 1940, and its supreme versatility was never surpassed, nor was its propensity for adaptation.

 

( ... ) ..., the prototype ( K5083 ) flew for the first time on November 6th, 1935, being delivered to Martlesham Heath for official trials during the following February. ( ... ) On June 3rd, 1936, an initial quantity of six hundred was officially ordered and three weeks later the name " Hurricane " was approved.

Francis K. Mason A.R.Ae.S.

Francis Kenneth Mason A.R.Ae.S. (September 4th, 1928 - August 31st, 2010) was a well-known author and expert on aviation. 

He joined R.A.F. as a regular Officer and flew Vampire night-fighters with No. 25 Squadron. On leaving the Service in 1956 he joined the project design team at Hawker Aircraft Ltd. 

He made the change from industry to journalism in 1963, was for a time the editor of Flying Review International, and since then has launched a number of original and successful publishing ventures which have brought him into contact with writers and historians from all over the world. 

In 1969, he published his definitive Battle Over Britain, which aroused considerable critical interest and has come to be regarded as the standard work on the air campaigns of 1940. 

Here are some of his publications : The Gloster gladiator (1964), The Hawker P.1127 and Kestrel (1967), The Gloster Gamecock (1971), The illustrated encyclopedia of major aircraft of World War II (1983), The Hawker Typhoon and Tempest (1988), The British bomber since 1914 (1994).
