This book is a record of the history and restoration of Hawker Hurricane P3351/DR393.

Ian Brodie gives an account of the context of the aircraft's existence during WWII, how it was rediscovered in Russia after lying abandoned for many years, and the many hours spent on her restoration. Included are photographs from Hawker Restorations (UK) and Air New Zealand, two of the main contributors to the aircraft's restoration, as well as photographs of the aircraft's first post-restoration flight.

An eagle wings up in heavenward flight

Till far out of reach of human flight

And gazes on earth from his lordly height

In the clouds of the cold upper air.

And this is the life, exultant he screams

To soar without fear where the lightning gleams

To look down unblenched on sun's gorgeous beams

And be prey to no harrowing care!
