The RAF Museum at Hendon has the sole surviving example of a Hawker Typhoon. This machine was built under subcontract by the Gloster Air Company and was delivered to the RAF in March 1944, it was shipped to the USA a month later for flight evaluation trials. It was later transferred to the Smithsonian Institute National Air Museum before returning to the UK for refurbishment at RAF Shawbury in 1968. It has been at Hendon since the Museum opened in 1972.
