IT is a comparatively simple matter to settle down to the quantity production of an aeroplane in a brand new factory where expense is no object when considering the purchase of new machines and the ordering of tools, but it is far different when the factory already exists and has to be adapted to produce a much greater number of machines than had ever been contemplated by its original constructors and when the cost of the original design has to be added to that of tooling and overheads. The production of the Hawker Hurricane 1 affords a striking example of the successful solution of this problem. No one with any knowledge of the Kingston works can do anything but admit that they are not ideal. The buildings are old and at no time has work been slack enough to permit the closing of any one section for its complete rebuilding. Another handicapping feature was the lack of space in the immediate vicinity to allow for expansion. It is these facts that must be understood and appreciated for the true realisation of the work described in the following pages.
