The Hawker Hurricane was the workhorse fighter plane in the Battle of Britain. This particular plane on display at the Imperial War Museum in Duxford, England was recovered from a crash site in Russia in 1941.
The Hurricane the first single-seat 8-gun monoplane fighter that entered service in 1937. In 1940, Hurricanes shot down more enemy aircraft that all the other defences combined. Source: IWM, Duxford.
Building upon the Korean War success of the SovietMiG-15, this single seat MiG-17F had wings that were more sharply swept back and a longer fuselage. This aircraft’s maneuverability and cannon-armament proved legendary in dog fights. It could out-maneuver american missiles and out-fly larger american fighters. NATO gave the code-word “Fresco” to the MiG17. The Vietnamese called the painted versions of this plane “Snakes” (From the description on the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space museum).
