Hawker Hurricane control column

Hawker Hurricane control columnI wish to inject some life into our new Militaria section in the eHangar.com Forum by sharing some of my own pieces of militaria I have collected over the years.

My pride and joy in my collection is a rare complete Hawker Hurricane Mk I control column.

I acquired this on eBay about 15 years ago. I can’t remember how much I paid for it but it must have been a lot.

It is a restored display piece, complete with name plate showing the serial number of the Hurri, which is AH 2040. I have yet to do research on this particular aircraft, but if anyone has info on it, I would love to hear from you.

I had it stored away for all this time, never displayed because initially I hid it from my wife (!) and later because I was moving around a lot. I decided to finally display it in my home a few days ago so I can enjoy looking at it.

Please enjoy the photos and share your comments with me here, if any. 🙂
