    Default Hurricane I P2544 on 6 June 1941

    On 6 June 1941, the Hurricane I P2544 of 71 OTU RAF (a former plane of 274 Sqn) was severely damaged after a forced landing at Ismailia. It was never repaired and was then used as an instructional airframe, until struck off charge.

    Do anyone know which was the pilot during its last flight, and his fate ?

    Thanks in advance

    Hello Laurent,

    The Pilot of Hurricane P2544, 71 OTU on its last flt was Sgt WB Hendyside ?

    Source 1180 .

    However i think the 1180 Has the wrong Name but correct service No , it should be VINOY BARNES HANDYSIDE RAAF
    404243 , Who Survived WW2 , see file at the ANA , get back to me if you want the 1180 for 6/6/41 .
