The Hawker Hurricane was the first British single-engine fighter and the first single wing aircraft
with retractable landing gear as well as an enclosed cockpit and 8 machine guns. The Hurricane
went into operational service in December 1937 with the RAF 111 Squadron. The Hurricane is
usually over looked as a major player in the BoB because of the Spitfire but 80% of the 1,792
German aircraft shot down were because of the Hurricane. There were 14,533 Hurricanes
produced in all variants.

No. 303 Polish Squadron was formed in July 1940 and deployed to Northolt on August 2, 1940
where Zdzislaw Henneberg joined the unit. No. 303 was equipped with Hawker Hurricanes and
began official flights on August 24, 1940. During the first 7 days of operations the squadron
scored almost 40 enemy aircraft. By October 11, 1940 the unit claimed 126 kills. A ceremony on
December 15, 1940 credited Henneberg with 8 kills and awarded him the DFC. On April 12, 1941
Henneberg went MIA.
