Night Fighter, after the Battle of Britain some of the Hurricane squadrons were converted to the night fighter role . armed only with eight machine guns and the Mark 1 eyeball, the pilots would try as best they could to spot enemy bombers by their exhaust stubbs glowing or over the actual bombing of London during the Blitz. Very limited success was achieved till the advent of airborne radar.
In the shot is L F 363 in overall black scheme with the codes of 85 Squadron. This aircraft is part of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.
