A couple of pics for the experts to work out!
Apparently it was their only Hurricane (MK IIc), and it was scrapped after the hanger collapse on 3rd March 1954.
Anyone know it's RAF serial?
I hope the links work, this is the first time I've done it!

RE: Norwegian Hurricane

The Hurricane was offered to RNoAF by RAF in 1947 as an
instructional airframe.
It had RAF serial LF575, but received Maintenance No. 6282M
before it came to Norway 3.aug 1947.

No. 331 (Norwegian) Squadron operated Hurricanes from July to
November/December 1941.
