Hurricane David was the fourth named tropical cyclone, second hurricane, and first major hurricane of the 1979 Atlantic hurricane season. A Category 5 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale, David was among the deadliest hurricanes in the latter half of the 20th century, killing over 2,000 people in its path, mostly in the Dominican Republic. As of 2011, it remains the only hurricane to make landfall on the Dominican Republic at Category 5 intensity.

Hurricane Mk I LK-A flown by P/O William D "Dennis" David of No 87 Squadron RAF is refuelled at Seclin in May 1940. Prior to the German invasion in May 1940, the aircraft had a crowned red lion on a yellow crest painted onto its starboard cockpit door with eventually five small skulls added as David's victory markings above the artwork. A rigger unhinged the door soon after the aircraft had been abandoned at Merville and brought it back to England for eventual presentation to the squadron.
