Did You Know?
This design is based on the Hurricane (UF-H, serial number P3358) flown by Pilot Officer William “Billy” Fiske III.  Billy Fiske was an American fighter pilot during WWII and an Olympian.   At the 1928 and 1932 Winter Olympics where he won gold as driver for the US bobsledding team, also acting as the American Olympic flagbearer in 1932.  When World War II broke out in 1939, Fiske travelled to the UK and joined the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve, claiming Canadian citizenship in order to be permitted to enlist where he would participate in the Battle of Britain.  On 12 July 1940, Fiske joined No. 601 Squadron RAF, a Hawker Hurricane unit, at RAF Tangmere, West Sussex, carrying out his first sorties with the squadron on 20 July.  On 16 August 1940, during the Battle of Britain, No. 601 Squadron RAF were scrambled to intercept a squadron of German dive-bombers with  Fiske flying Hurricane serial number P3358. The Squadron destroyed eight Ju-87 Stukas, but after just 15 minutes of flying time, a German gunner put a bullet through Fiske's fuel tank.
 
With his aircraft badly damaged and his hands and ankles burnt, instead of bailing out, Fiske nursed his Hurricane home, gliding over a hedgerow to the airfield. Although he landed his aircraft safely back at Tangmere, Fiske had to be extracted from the aircraft by ambulance attendants. Shortly after, his fuel tank exploded. Fiske was taken to Hospital in Chichester for treatment, but he died from surgical shock shortly afterwards, on 17 August. Fiske was 29 years old and was the first American pilot killed in action during World War II.
