    Thanks for the post and article Micdrow. Very interesting.

    I was indirectly involved with a Hawker Hurricane Mk. I that is undergoing restoration in the UK. It was originally crash landed on a beach near Dunkirk in 1940 and was recovered half a century later. It is a central "character" in my book, "Down to Earth".

    Here's an image of the aircraft taken some time back.

    Very cool Owen, I will have too look when I get home, If Im thinking right I have a picture in a book some where that shows it on the beach with the tail part missing. You said this was taken a while back. Is it a static display or or will it be flyable?

    Many thanks for the info.

    Hi again,

    The Hurricane is under restoration to full flying status.

    If you think there'd be interest, I could start a thread on this particular machine.

    Cheers

    Owen

    Up to you but I think there is alway interest in any type of restoration project, especially when i covers WWII aircraft.
