The first image shown here, is definetly not a Hawker Hurricane, and is a Curtis Model 75, which was an export version of the P-36, (known as the "Mowhawk" in RAF service). This aircraft was originally built for the French air force, and served with them before, and after the capitulation of France in 1940. It was restored in Chino, California, and now flys in the UK, as part of "The Fighter Collection", based at the Imperial war museum, at Duxford.

This picture #8488 appears to be a P-36 Curtis Hawk from which the P-40 was developed

The hawker hurricane was an amazing fighter durring the battle of brittan. Everyone gives the Spitfire all of the credit and I thought that I should give the hurricane and all of thier piolts the recognition due. The hurricane acctually had 2.5x more kills durring the battle of brittan than the spitfire. I still wish to give credit to all of the spitfires that made it possible for the hurricanes to achieve theit kills. The spitfires went after the fighters to allow the hurricanes to pounce on the bombers. Teamwork is how wars and battles are won.
