Karel Miloslav Kuttelwascher, nicknamed Kut, was a Czech fighter pilot who first served with the French Air Force until Germany occupied the country and then began serving with the RAF during WWII. At RAF Tangmere No. 1 Squadron was tasked with night intrusion over France. Painted all black and no radar these flights only took place on moonlit nights. During 1942 Kuttelwascher downed 15 aircraft and damaged 5. He was the RAF's most successful Czechoslovak pilot with 18 victories and the recipient of the DFC and Bar.

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.
