No guns as its is a Mk-XIX Photo Recognisance variant.

The Hurricane is a bit special as it’s the very last of the 14533 produced, PZ865 is a Mk-IIC & it too has no ‘machine guns’ & was equiped with a pair of 20 mm Hispano cannons in each wing. PZ865 first flew in July 1944, but it never went into service & was used by Hawkers as a test aircraft.

In the late 70s I worked for Trident Electrical Retail and sold amongst other stuff Candy washing machines, the amazing 6 wheeler F1 car was part of a Candy display, IIRC it had been driven by Patrick Depailler. We all got to sit in it for photos, my backside didn’t get down to the seat, Patrick D was a bit thinner.

Oman - the Dhofar War - not all the anti mine protection is shown as it had protection underneath .

Thanks Mike, I was 99% certain that the Spitfire was a photo recognisance version, I wasn’t aware of the Hurricane’s provenance

Photo taken in 2014. New Scotland Yard has since been demolished but I hope this classic police car is still going.

Living close to one of the International airshow venues meant (pre Shoreham) a great view of proceedings from our garden. I could sit there with a beer and a camera and enjoy the sights and sounds. I think XH558 probably classes as vintage and i do miss the sight and sound of this beautiful aircraft.

I live under what was XH558 designated flight path to/from Doncaster to central south England.
Had some good views, mostly she was at 500 to 1000ft, but some were remarkably lower than that.
I took this while snapping some bird activity in the garden & heard her coming just in time to get this one shot fired off, crap photo, but its as it was.
