Product Description

It s eight wing-mounted Colt-Brownings spitting flame, the Hawker Hurricane swooped to dispatch over two-thirds of all enemy aircraft destroyed in the Battle of Britain. Courageous squadron commander Douglas Bader, I 4 - kill hero 'Cobber Kain', Ginger Lacey the top Battle of Britain ace with 18 victims and many other RAF pilots owed their reputations and their lives to this toughest mount of all. The Hurricane was outnumbered but never outclassed, designed to hit the enemy hard, absorb tremendous punishment yet live to fight another day. Featuring colour footage of the last surviving aircraft, alongside original combat film. This is the definitive documentary of a fighter plane that truly changed the course of history.

If you are looking for a well researched and in depth history of the Hurricane this is not it. It is a some archive footage of Hurricanes and a general resume of the BoB with further footage of the battle often repeated. Disappointing!

The title is misleading, as there's too little of the Hurricane, then too much generic footage of WW2 and its aircraft in general.

Try another title - the Hurricane is an iconic aircraft and well worth hearing about in detail!

At one penny (used) it was a good hour's worth of entertainment. It lightly covered the different marks of Hurricane and their various ops although some of the original WW2 film was of poor quality. (Was that a Messerschmidt coming under attack or was it a Hurripot?) Film clips that are used in other DVDs. But overall OK.

The DVD quality is good and the story line most informative .

Gave it five stars ,

Also was aware that Hurricane ability was hidden by the popularity of the Spitfire as known to the RAF .
