Super-Rare Hawker Hurricane takes to the skies

Last week, we brought you news that an ultra-rare Hawker Hurricane from World War II is to be auctioned by Bonhams this December. This week, we’ve gone one better: take a look at our exclusive video of the deadly fighter in action with a serving RAF pilot at the controls.



One of just a dozen still in commission, the Hurricane will go under the hammer as part of Bonhams’ auction at Mercedes-Benz World on 3 December 2012, with an estimate of £1.4 - 1.7 million.

Special thanks to Bonhams, Dave Harvey and the staff at Imperial War Museum Duxford.
