Hawker Hurricane

The Hawker Hurricane is a British single-seat fighter aircraft introduced in the late 1930s and used throughout world war two.  The Hurricane was arguably the backbone of the RAF during the battle of Britain although largely overshadowed by the Supermarine Spitfire. The Hawker Hurricane and Supermarine Spitfire shared the same engine, the Rolls Royce Merlin.

The evolution of the aircraft design resulted in a series of aircraft as interceptor-fighters, fighter-bombers (also called "Hurribombers"), and ground support aircraft.

Further modifications resulted in the Hawker Sea Hurricane which enabled operation from ships.

  • For the pilots, the sound study is the important factor and they need to recognize the voice as well to get acknowledge the functionality of the aircraft engine. I’m sure the aircraft sound recordings are pretty helpful in their studies.
