To celebrate FlyPast's 500th issue, our friends at hurricaneheritage.com are offering FlyPast readers the chance to win a flight in a Hawker Hurricane!
One lucky winner will enjoy a flight in the world’s only two-seat Hurricane, BE505. Once airborne you will be joined by R4118, the only surviving Hurricane to have taken part in The Battle of Britain, and one of the most original British fighters from World War Two still in airworthy condition today. Nothing quite prepares you for the experience of looking out over your wing and flying in formation with this significant aircraft.
The flight will take place from the wartime airfield of White Waltham. You will be briefed in the historic clubhouse before being taken out and shown around the two Hurricanes. Once strapped in you will experience the sensory onslaught of the legendary Merlin start, before being launched by 1,300hp into the air! During your flight you will, subject to operational considerations, get the chance to take control of our graceful warbird and undertake some aerobatics to experience first-hand the incredible manoeuvrability that has given the Hurricane its reputation.
