Hawker Hurricane Mk.IIC LF363 JX-B of the BBMF

A collection of images of Hawker Hurricane Mk.IIC LF363 of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight taken at RAF Coningsby in July 2016. LF363 was built at the Hawker factory at Langley near Slough. It first flew in January 1944 and is believed to be the last Hurricane to enter service with the RAF. The aircraft served with No 63 Squadron at Turnhouse, No 309 (Polish) Squadron at Drem, where it was used on shipping protection patrols off the east coast of Scotland, and No 26 Squadron with whom it flew naval artillery spotting and reconnaissance sorties before the end of the War (source BBMF).
