Hawker Hurricane MK IV FighterAviation_HurricaneMKIV_White_11x14 $44
The Canadian Car and Foundry of Montreal manufactured 1,451 Hawker Hurricanes between 1938 and 1943. Twenty-six RAF squadrons were equipped at the beginning of the Battle of Britain and Hurricanes shot down more enemy aircraft than all other defenses combined. Later in the war, Sea Hurricanes were launched by catapult from ships at sea to defend convoys against air attack. A ‚Äútank buster‚Äù version with 40-mm cannons was used in North Africa.
The Inspiration behind our Hawker Hurricane MK IV Art Print
I am a longtime fan of aircraft, WWII warplanes in particular. The style and simplicity of aircraft designs of the era inspire my art. The black and white treatment of the Hurricane is complemented by a pop of colour in the RCAF roundel. This version of the roundel is a recreation of the RCAF's first Silver Maple edition that actually didn't come into service until the late 1940s. I've also taken liberties with the squadron letters, choosing to create my own: CA for 'Canada' and 43 for the last year of manufacture.
