MUST SEE: The Hurricane recovered from a lake near Murmansk

The loss of the Hurricane was discovered in 2001 when a research group of the ‘Federation of Aviarestoration’ found a wartime report whilst going through the Naval archives. The report indicated that a Soviet pilot had undertaken an emergency landing on a small frozen lake to the west of Murmansk. A salvage team had been dispatched at the time but before they could retrieve the Hurricane it went through the ice. It was declared uneconomical to salvage and so was struck off charge.
