Harry Hawker

Illustration for article titled Harry Hawker

Here is Harry Hawker, chief test pilot for the Sopwith Aircraft Company, and one of the founders of Hawker Aircraft. His ride was a Sunbeam-Mercedes and it was quite quick. When not flying aircraft he was a regular at Brooklands. During WWII the Hawker company built Hurricanes at Brooklands. Sadly, Harry was not there to see it as he died in a crash in 1921.
