The secret story of a schoolgirl who helped engineer the new generation of Spitfire and Hurricane fighter planes, that were deemed crucial in winning the Second World War, has been revealed for the first time to mark the Battle of Britain’s 80th anniversary. In the summer of 1934 Hazel Hill, a 13-year-old girl from north London, was approached by her father, Captain Fred Hill, a scientific officer in the Air Ministry who was trying to make the case for the new generation of fighter planes. Despite her youth, Captain Hill drew upon his daughter’s mathematical intellect and discussed plans with her as to how it could be possible to arm Spitfires with eight machine guns, as opposed to the four which had been originally suggested. The number was seen as “radical” by Captain Hill’s superiors, who were concerned that the sheer weight of the guns would weigh down the planes, and it would be impossible to fit them. With a calculating machine and the latest gun firing analysis, Captain Hill and his teenage daughter sat at the kitchen table and mocked up calculations of how to make it work. Together, they devised how it would be possible to arm what would become the Spitfire and Hurricane with double the amount of Browning .303 machine-guns. They calculated the exact distance the fighters had to be from the enemy aircraft to successfully hit their target and bring it down in two seconds - the amount of time a pilot could be expected to keep an enemy in their sights - it would have to have eight machine guns that could fire one thousand rounds a minute.
