As a Hawker Hurricane superfan, Darren Harbar never thought he’d achieve his ultimate ambition of flying in the famous fighter, let alone in formation with another. That lifetime ambition has now been achieved thanks to a new proposition from Hurricane Heritage
When it comes to favourite aircraft, I’ve always loved the Hawker Hurricane. I built kits of the type while growing up and found myself leaning more towards it than the Spitfire, despite having a love for both. In my early years (which were quite a while back), only two examples of the famous fighter were airworthy in the UK, both with the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight. Thankfully, that has changed, largely due to the dedication and incredible workmanship of Hawker Restorations, which has returned many more to the air since the company was formed in 1987.
