Narrative:
The 1941 Hurricane collided with a 1944 Vickers Supermarine Spitfire after landing and while both aircraft were on the runway. Both aircraft had participated in an aerial demonstration for the museum's airshow, and were to use a staggered landing, where landing aircraft would use the left and right sides of the runway during landing. The pilot of the Hurricane stated that the right brake failed, causing the airplane to turn to the left. Before the pilot of the Hurricane could get the airplane back on the right half of the runway, the Spitfire impacted the rear of the Hurricane.
