A biplane version of the Hawker Hurricane...!

Every now and then I come across something that I never would have thought of and which is at the same time, ridiculous and very interesting.

This biplane conversion of the famous Hawker Hurricane would have to be one of those things. Add on the intention to be able to jettison the wing in flight. Almost unbelievable!

It sounds nuts, and basically was. I think this short video of what was now designated the Hillson FH.40 Slip Wing Hurricane says it best. Enjoy the next nine minutes! 😲
