USAAF, USN or RN Hurricane
« on: December 10, 2006, 01:31:15 AM »
This one is a real puzzle.

A hurricane with USAAF or USN markings, but on the tall Royal Navy can be seen. The only information I have is that it was taken on the 8th Nov 1942 and could be in Algeria.

Good morning mate!!!

Yellow border arround the national insignia as well date and place of crash clearly indicate operation "Torch". Note also that national flag on the vertical is also overpainted. Plane on image could be Hurricane Mk. XIIb built in the Canada by Canadian Car & Foundry and it is converted into the deck  version. And this is ex 808 from Fleet Air Arm and place of photo might to be beach close to the St Leu in Algeria.

Nice start and take note- infront of the windshield on the fuselage could be seen anti blast plate. remove it for this version. It is used on night fighters only.
