High over London Hurricanes of 85 Squadron engage Me109's in an intense dogfight during the heavy fighting of August 1940. The Hurricane; cheaper, much easier to build, and much more numerous than her much lauded cousin, the Spitfire. The Hurricane, a little slower and less maneuverable than the Spitfire, was usually used to attack bombers while the Spits kept the Messershmidt's busy. But the Hurricane could usually hold her own in a dogfight.
