Photo of WWII Hawker Hurricane fighter plane at the Joint Services Open House air show at Andrew's Air Force Base in Maryland. This air show takes place the 3rd week of May. The Hawker Hurricane accounted for 60% of air to air kills in the Battle of Britan in spite of being an older design. The flashier Spitfire took all the credit for the victory in the Battle of Britan.
