Home / Kent / Hawkinge 6

aerial photographs of 3 Hawker Hurricanes on display at the Kent Battle of Britain Museum. Hawkinge, Kent UK. Designed by Sir Sydney Camm , the Hawker Hurricane was the most numerous British fighter aircraft during the Battle of Britain , accounting for 60% of kills. The aircraft's simple construction and easier of repair and maintenance allowed higher availability than the more complex Spitfire. The Hurricanes on display at Hawkinge are replicas constructed for the film "The Battle of Britain" which was filmed partially at this location in 1968. The Museum is situated in what remains of the Battle of Britain airfield RAF Hawkinge which was opened in 1915 and operational until 1961

The easiest way to navigate this gallery is using the geographic menu on the left. The aerial photographs are all organised in galleries according to their location so start with the county and then choose the town or village. Wales & Scotland are at the bottom under the English Counties. If your looking at a picture and are not sure where it is, click the arrow on the upper right and it will show you which album it is in. Click the album name to see nearby images. There is a search facility ( bottom left ) but this only works with words I have put into it. That's fine for searches of places or well known buildings but in most cases I have not entered road name or a post code. The gallery is only a small part of my collection of UK aerial photographs so please Email if you would like to buy an aerial view of something not in the gallery. There are over 25,000 photos in the gallery and I have an archive of around half a million pictures going back to 1999.
