The Hawker Hurricane Mk XII (s/n 5481) registered C-FDNL flew again on Sunday October 2 in Scone, Australia. The aircraft was restored by Vintage Fighter Restorations.

It is painted in the colours of Hurricane Mk I V6748 of the Royal Air Force’s No 46 Squadron de la Royal Air Force during the Battle of Britain. P/O J. D. Crossman was shot down and killed by German fighters flying this aircraft on 30 September 1940.

Photos of the aircraft and its first flight are available from Aviation Spotter Online.

    I believe I have a tr 9d. Transceiver that matches this air plane.

      I am sure quite a few restorers would be interested in it. I would recommend contacting directly the owners of restored/preserved Hurricanes or other aircraft types that could benefit from it. I’m afraid I’m not familiar enough with radio equipment to direct you to a specific group or owner, but maybe our visitors can help.
