It is a good idea! I'd love to have the Sea Hurris!

you ACTUALLY painted her?
i know that her history cannot truly be traced (the letters on her denote the guy who saved her (his intials), a former member of the Duxford trust (i think).

I guess it should pose not a too big problem, since the sea hurricane was teh land-based one with a arresting hook added to it...

i thought those ships were CAMs (catapult armed erchentmen), iirc it was a one way trip for the hurri pilots, they had to ditch and hope for rescue.
