    Here is one, for now. This one was unfortunately sold to Canada. It is the only Hurricane flying in North America.

    Nice :D I reckon that the Hurricane is the best looking of all British planes.

    And I've never seen the big deal with the Spit's styling.

    Real fine airplane! Here are a few more of ours, and a couple flying from the Imperial War museum in formation with a Spitfire and a Lancaster.

    You know something...Nothing compares to a live view of an airplane especially a WW2 airplane... The way the lines meet, everything meets in a perfect shape... It's beautiful...A picture can't show all this... To feel it, to smell it, to hear it's engine growl...wooow... You guis who actually had the opportunity to fly in such a masterpiece should consider yourselfs lucky... The only plane I flew in was a Zlin-526...(nice...but it doesn't compare...)

    Nice pics, do like the old lady Hurricane but I prefer the Spitfire. Though as hellmaker has said nothing compares to seeing them in real life, fantastic, just fantastic. 8)

    I've seen loads in real life and flying, If you can go to RAF Conningsby where the BBMF is stationed. The list of WW2 planes I've seen is too big to remember

    Yeah, Hurri despite an impression that it was a biplane that lost its top wing somewhere :lol: is truly a beauty. Not only was it beautiful but also very tough.
    One disadvantage that could make pilot's life, hmmm complicated was that glicol tank in front of the windshield...
    But nevertheless it is one of my favourite planes. (besides Spit MkIX, Fw190A6 and P38J). :D

    Well, which WWII planes have I seen?
    Hmm, a lot of them, to mention only few of them:
    Spitfire IX (Mark Hanna (R.I.P) at controls), Spit Mk.XVI (static, ex Canadian), recce Spit (I can't recall the exact Mk, driven by Aussie pilot, Nigel Lamb). Corsair (New Zealand markings), Bf109G (static), Spanish built 109 (Jumoschmitt - in dogfight with MkIX, awesome), P11c static with working engine, I 16, Yak3 and 9, La5, Il2, Pe2, Tu2 (all of these Soviet planes static).

    Hey Guys, tell me when to go to the UK for any air show with WWII planes? Are there any air shows specially dedicated to such planes?
    If yes, where and when do they take place usually?
