By the outbreak of World War II in 1939, eighteen RAF squadrons were equipped with Hurricanes, compared with nine that used Spitfires. This two-to-one ratio applied through the Battle of Britain in the summer of 1940, in which Hurricanes shot down more enemy aircraft than all other defences - air and ground - combined.

Cub L4 Grasshopper [50 photos]
Based on the Cub J3 the L4 (affectionately known as the Grasshopper) was produced for the US Army. It had better accomodation for the pilot and passenger along with better all round visibility. The construction is of welded steel tube fuselage with a two spar wooden wing covered by fabric, the wing also braced by V struts. The undercarriage is bungee sprung.

After the 2nd World War many were left in the field and used by many European countries to restart civil flying clubs and flying schools. They made very good training aircraft and recreational flying machines. Many have survied to this day and are much loved by their owners, due to the easy handling and maintenance.
