During the Second World War 6 Squadron flew the Mk IV Hurricane in ground-attack missions in the European theatre until the early days of 1944. In 1944, the squadron moved to Italy and flew the remainder of the war over the Balkans, equipped with rocket-firing Hurricane Mk. IVs.

Coded UP-W, Hurricane R4118 flew 49 combat missions and destroyed five German aircraft during World War Two, during which period it was rebuilt four times due to sustained enemy fire and a series of training accidents. The only Hurricane from the Battle of Britain still airborne today, Hawker Hurricane Mk1 R4118 is widely regarded as the most historic British aircraft to survive in flying condition from the Second World War.
