William Lidstone "Willie" McKnight was commissioned in the RAF in 1939. On May 19, 1940, McKnight shot down his first German. With No. 242 Squadron, Willie was involved in fierce fighting over Dunkirk, where he claimed at least eight kills. McKnight was killed on January 12, 1941, by Bf109 fire over France.

Hawker Hurricane Mk II

Based on the Fury biplane and designed by Sydney Camm as a monoplane fighter, the Hurricane was first flown on November 6th, 1935. With its wide-set landing gear, easy handling, reliability, and stable gun platform, the Hurricane was suitable for a variety of different roles such as intruder, ground strafing and night fighter. Steel-tube construction meant cannon shells could pass right through the wood and fabric covering without exploding. The Hurricane underwent many modifications during its lifetime, including an upgraded Merlin engine and interchangeable multi-purpose wings, staging twelve 7.7mm guns and two 40mm anti-tank guns and carrying two 500lb bombs.
