Love the shot. Beautiful plane.
Been wondering, did the RAF flyers name their planes the way we did during WWII?

The pilots did name their aircraft yes but not all were. It was mainly the bombers that did so. The fighters occasionally had names but very rarely did they have the big nose art just a name painted by the cockpit.

Thanks for the reply. I was just wondering. I've seen lots of pictures of american aircraft that had nose art and names and was curious.

Thanks for the kind words!! :D

If it were down to me though to rank them in terms of looks, the Hurricane would actually sit higher than Spitfire, Of course that is to assume the Spitfire was your first. I know I am in a minority but despite the fact that the Spitfire has obvious grace and glamour, for me the earlier fabric over wood/metal frame approach to aircraft designs tend to catch my eye more. I tend to find the interwar period of aviation most fascinating. The biplanes of that period were so beautiful such as the Fury, Hart/Hind/Demon and Gladiator etc. The simplicity of their construction and the ability to see the human touch to these aircraft with the ribs and frame showing through the canvas has always won through for me. The Hurricane seems to sit perfectly for me between the two ideals. She looks graceful and has the lines of the iconic piston fighters of world war two, yet she still retains the construction techniques of earlier designs.
