The prototype, K5083, was first flown at Brooklands on November 6 1935 by chief test pilot P.W.S. 'George' Bulman and in all some 2,800 Hurricanes were completed and flown out of that site.

How the last Hurricane was made - was this the last major aircraft to be made to the same basic methods as the earliest "stick and string" planes? It still proved capable of delivering the goods !
