Sea Fury Crash

On August 4th the Norwegian Historic Flight Sea Fury TMk20, WG655/G-INVN, suffered a forced landing near Duxford following engine failure. Both occupants received only minor injuries but the aircraft was seriously damaged.

This is the second forced landing for WG655. In July 1990, when with the Royal Navy Historic Flight as G-CHFP, its Bristol Centaurus failed. After a successful touchdown it crashed into the only two trees in the field and was written off but was eventually rebuilt with a Pratt & Whitney R2800 by Sanders Aviation in the USA. The pilot was unhurt but the passenger was injured.

This was one of the Sea Furies refurbished at Dunsfold, finished in red, for Deutsche Luftfahrt Beratungsdienst who used it as D-CACU for target towing.
