THere was an article in MR a few years ago, and a guy actually did that! Not sure if he finished it, but it was still a good article. It may have been in MR No;90?

A while back there was a programme on the TV about a 'dig' in London, it seems Flight Sergeant Ray Holmes having inoperative guns deliberately flew his Hurricane into a German Do17 bringing both aircraft down, an act of valour witnessed by many on the ground.
Saw that program, really interresting. Wonder if the same would happen now?
I seem too remeber the Do17 was apparently heading for the palcae with both engines on fire. Earlier the Hurricane had nearly een roasted by a flame thrower in the belly of a german bomber, which had failed resulting in his view being obscured by oil.
