Time to load up the shotgun and shoot at everything.
Hmm, did Hawker ever make a racing plane in the '30s? Or are we looking at the first Hurricane protoype, built to answer the Air Ministry
specification? Before guns and sights and whatnot were fitted? And after the RAF got over it's love affair with the Demon/Hart...But, if it were it
would have a two-blade, fixed-pitch, wooden prop...I still think it was a pylon racing job...Unless it was Hughes' record-breaker, but that had
flush-fitted metal panels, not that internal bracing I can see...Urghh, damn you, Waynos!
Right, not the Battle or the Roc, could be the Firefly, the Fulmar, Barracuda or the Skua...But I'm going with Fulmar...
Seaplane: Well it isn't the Supermarine S6B Rolls Royce-engined monster, that's for sure.
edit: No. 3 isn't the Sopwith Salamander, is it?
