In the English town of Windsor, on the River Thames, there is a full-sized replica of a Hawker Hurricane aircraft, positioned as if it’s skimming low over the gardens on the river’s edge. It commemorates Sir Sydney Camm, designer of the aircraft, and local resident, and something much more.
The Hurricane was known as the workhorse of the RAF during the Battle of Britain in 1940, contributing to what was considered a decisive victory for the British. Hurricanes shot down more enemy aircraft during WWII than all other types of aircraft combined.
The theme of this week’s photo challenge is object.
