Change of Markings for the Museum’s Hurricane

To mark the forthcoming Polish and Czech Pilot exhibition (22 July until 3 September) the Museum’s Mk1 Hawker Hurricane full size model, normally marked in Paul Richey’s No 1 Squadron Battle of France markings, has been temporarily overlaid with a detachable doped linen skin on its left side. The work has been undertaken by Pete Mackean, a member of the Museum’s engineering team.

The new markings (RF-R) are of Josef Frantisek’s aircraft he flew in the Battle of Britain. Frantisek, a Czech, elected to fly with the newly formed Polish No 303 Squadron during the battle and became the highest scoring Allied fighter pilot. He was killed when R4175 crashed in mysterious circumstances on 8 October 1940.

The aircraft will be returned to its No 1 Squadron markings at the end of the exhibition.
