Hawker Hurricane Mk.IV fighter, which was flown by Czechoslovak pilots during the Second World War. This fighter was acquired by the Točná Aviation Museum in Prague at the beginning of summer 2021. Visitors and fans can admire it there in the camouflage of the Mk.IIc version of Czech aviation ace Karel Kuttelwascher.

Beauty in the sky, but also on the ground

The Czech catch in the form of Hawker Hurricane Mk.IV is reaping success and enthusiasm from every side. “We will also take part in air days and public appearances to commemorate the legacy of the Czechoslovak RAF pilots during World War II, as a legacy to those who survived the war, but also to those who failed to reach happily,” Jiří Horák of the Točná Air Museum told Czech media in mid-May.

The fighter was manufactured by Hawker Aircraft Ltd, at the famous Kingston-upon-Thames factory between November 20, 1942 and April 19, 1943. During the Second World War this aircraft served in Italy, Greece and what was then Yugoslavia. After the end of the war it also served briefly in Cyprus and Palestine.

Today, of the 14,583 aircraft originally produced, fewer than 15 are capable of flying and one is the last, in the Mk.IV version.
