Hello,

Hope it comes with the next patch /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif The I-153 killer!


http://www.jaapteeuwen.speedlinq.nl/pictures/jpg/hills%20fh%2040.jpg



In continuation of work on Bi-Mono, F Hills and Sons obtained Air Ministry permission to fit a 'slip-wing' to a Hurricane I. Aircraft used was early Mk I, one of 20 transferred to Canada in 1939 and returned to UK in 1942 (originally L1884, but retaining RCAF serial 321 for 'slip-wing' trials). First taxi-trials and flights at RAF Sealand, May 25-28 1943; ferried to A & AEE September 15, 1943. Upper wing, of same span as lower, never slipped in flight.

Cheers,
=38=IndiaOscar

Hey, are you Indian by any chance? We're pretty poorly represented on this forum, and it'll be good to know that there is another one of us here. Cheerio!

I have more info on this aircraft. The top wing is nothing but a large gas tank for long flights and ferry flights. It was to be jettosened when the tank was empty or if enemy's were encounterd. I really dont think you want to get into a fight with a giant gas tank over your head http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Bring her in! I love balls of fire up here!Hehehehe.A flying fuel dump! Wonder if they will drop that wing once the dogfight will start as they do now with the bombs.

Hello Gibbage,

Airlife's "Hawker Hurricane- RAF fighter" states on p.21:

"L1884 was fitted with a jettisonable upper wing as an experiment IN GENERATING MORE LIFT DURING TAKEOFF from small, unimproved airfields. The upper wing COULD also have carried extra fuel to extend the aircraft's range."

Cheers,

How the heck could you jettison that wing/fuel tank safely..?? I mean get it wrong and your tail section is going Bye, Bye.

I'd hateto have to fly through a thunderstorm with that thing strapped onto my ing! I thinkwe ought to come up with a new name for this, like the Soviets did when they called the Lagg a Lakirovany Garantirovany Grob (Lamintated, garunteed coffin!)

Do to aerodynamic principles the wing would have backflipped up and away from the aircraft and then cartwheel down to the ground after losing its forward inertia. This assumes that you release in perfect level flight of course.

not sure if this was the way of jetison that wing but I believe that you can bank the plane and it would fall back right or back left , depending on the direction you bank. If you would lean forward or backward you will wreck either the tail , either the prop. Or maybe they flew upside down and drop it? Is there a description of how they were doing that?
