A British icon that could be yours for £1.7m: Restored World War II Hurricane goes up for auction

With 12 Browning .303 machine guns and a maximum speed of 322mph, this Hurricane can certainly still pack a punch.

Now aviation enthusiasts will have a rare chance to bid on one of them, with the 70-year-old fighter aircraft from World War Two expected to go for £1.7million this December in Weybridge, Surrey.

The plane, built in 1942, was based in Canada during the war and is believed to have protected convoys on the East Coast from German U-boat activity – or used as a training aircraft. for more click here
