Chance Encounter - Hawker Hurricane Mk.I
Hawker Hurricane Battle Of Britain Aviation Art Print by Chris French GAvA
With RDF (Radar) vectoring, the pilots of Fighter Command generally knew what to expect before they reached their intercept. There were occasions though when returning flights would come across another formation, as has happened here. The Hurricanes come from 151 squadron which would give up its Hurricane's at the end of the battle and become a night fighter unit operating the Boulton Paul Defiant.
