Demon G-BTVE took to the air after an 18 year restoration on 23rd June 2009. Painted in the colours of 64 Squadron RAF and with serial number K8203, the Demon is the sole remaining flying example of this important interwar type. One of a batch of 37 built by Boulton Paul Aircraft in Wolverhampton, K8203 was originally assigned to 64 Squadron at Church Fenton before passing to No. 9 Maintenance Unit at RAF Cosford and then to No. 9 Air Observers School (later renamed No. 9 Bombing & Gunnery School) at RAF Penrhos. K8203 was struck off charge in September 1940 but served on as a ground training aid. The aircraft was finally retired properly in 1943. Acquired first by Guy Black and then Demon Displays the Demon was restored by Skysport Engineering and is now based at Old Warden in the United Kingdom.

Hawker Demon Mk I

Desinged to meet an Air Ministry specification for a two-seat fighter version of the Hart bomber, the Demon was first flown in 1931.

Corgi's 1:72 scale Hawker Hart series includes the Hart Day Bomber, Demon Fighter and Audax Army Co-Operation variants. The fuselage and lower wing are constructed in diecast metal while the top wing is constructed in plastic, both featuring simulated fabric stretched surfaces. The two individual tandem cockpits are fitted with a pilot figure and rear facing observer figure operating a ring mounted Lewis machine gun. Fine guage wire has been hand woven between the wings and is also seen on the horizontal stabilizer as well. Some models include wing mounted bombs, a tubular bomb sight mounted in front of pilot and a left hand side machine gun port.
