photoblog image Hawker Demon

Hawker Demon

 

The Hawker Demon was an interim  two seat fighter developed from the Hawker Hart bomber during the inter-war years. Although not one of Hawker's most succesfull designs over 200 were built and some saw service with the RAF in the Abyssinian crisis of 1935-6. A small number were also supplied to the Royal Australian Air Force. They were eventually all phased out by late 1938.
