Wikipedia, Jan. 26, 2010 (Hawker Hurricane was a British single-seat fighter aircraft that was designed and predominantly built by Hawker Aircraft Ltd; the 1930s design evolved through several versions and adaptations resulting in series of aircraft (also called Hurribombers); together with the Spitfire, the Hurricane was significant in enabling the Royal Air Force to win the Battle of Britain of 1940; more than 14,500 Hurricanes were built by the end of 1944, including about 1,200 converted to Sea Hurricanes)
