Residents looked on in awe as a fighter aircraft flew over South Oxhey yesterday evening.

The plane was recorded at around 7pm on Thursday, September 14, with people being able to hear the engines as it flew over.

It was a Hawker Hurricane Mk.LLC model, according to RadarBox, and reached an altitude of 1350ft.

According to a Royal Air Force spokesperson, it was most likely to have been from the Battle of Britian Memorial Flight and completing a Battle of Britian flypast at Northwood HQ.

This is one of five aircrafts which the RAF have as part of the BBMF, with a fleet of six Spitfires, two Hurricanes, a Lancaster, a C47 Dakota and two Chipmunks.

Several residents voiced their joy at seeing it fly past, with one hailing it as "amazing".

You will be able to watch a BBMF display at Bentley Priory on Saturday, September 16, at 2:10pm, according to the RAF website.

There are only 12 airworthy Hurricanes left in the world and were used in World War II during the Battle of Britian.
