    Exclamation Dunkirk Hurricane Restoration.

    Found this photo of a Mk1 Hurry that crash landed on the Beach at Dunkirk & was rescued in 1988 & rebuilt.
    Looks like they did a great job.

    Nice one Baz, they certainly did a great job on it.
    Pilot Officer Kenneth McGlashan 245 Sqn was the pilot when badly wounded in an attack by a 109 over Dunkirk & made a forced landing on the beaches.

    Obviously one of the RAF planes that nobody on the ground saw!
    Nice one Baz.
