About this product
- DescriptionWith 2015 being the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain - arguably the Hawker Hurricane's 'finest hour' - it is appropriate to tell the story of the surviving Hurricanes from around the world. Building on research originally started thirty years ago, the author has delved into the archives to amass new information.
- Author BiographyGordon Riley was first introduced to the world of vintage aviation through his father, who had been a Lancaster pilot during World War II. His interest in preserved vintage aircraft came from visits to the Skyfame Museum at Staverton and the Shuttleworth Collection at Old Warden in the 1960s; he later became one of the founding members of the Midland Aircraft Preservation Society. He started as an editorial assistant on Aviation News and remained there for a year. From there he published Britain's first magazine dedicated to vintage aircraft - the aptly titled Vintage Aircraft magazine which he edited from 1976-1986. Gordon's previous work includes Spitfire Survivors (1984), with later editions being co-written with the late Graham Trant and, more recently, Peter Arnold.
