Abstract

THAT spar repairs were indeed needed, and not only for repairing damage caused by bullets, shells and flak, is evidenced by the fact that on one occasion a Hurricane had the bottom boom of the front spar severed when it flew into a balloon cable. Fortunately, the cable broke and the pilot succeeded in flying the aeroplane back to his station. The wing was satisfactorily repaired at Hawker's Homewood works some idea of the extent of the damage will be gained from FIG. 11.
