Sea Hurricane slides off flight deck

Sea Hurricane slides off flight deck

This Sea Hurricane slid off a wet flight deck on a British aircraft carrier in October 1944. The aircraft was recovered and repaired.

Many thanks to David Horne for sending us these pictures, which came from the collection of his father, Peter Horne, who served with the Fleet Air Arm from 1942 to 1946.
