This particular Hawker Hurricane is a very highly detailed fiberglas replica. The original CWHM Hurricane was destroyed in a fire in 1993. This replica was made with a few parts salvaged from the original such as the main gear and tail wheel assemblies.

Here is some period Hawker Hurricane Youtube video with some gun camera footage at the end. This more current Youtube Hawker Hurricane video shows a museum Hurricane starting, doing a 6 minute run up, then taking off from a grass strip and doing a low level flyby.
