The first "Hurricane"?
I found this article in Flight magazine from 1923. Does anybody have any other details?


No. 14, the " Hurricane," is a monoplane designed and built by members of the Royal Aircraft Establishment Aero Club, Farnborough, Hants. The machine has an area of but 80 sq. ft., and is expected to be very fast. It was designed for the competition for the 500 prize offered by Abdulla and Co. The engine is a special Douglas of 600 c.c. Pilot : Flight-Lieut. Bulman.

Re: The first "Hurricane"?
It can't be "the" Hurricane that we are familiar with Amrit so sounds a little as if it was a "garden shed" build (if you know what I mean).

I'd be interested in seeing a pic as well.
