Apparently a Sea Fury has made a forced landing in Yeovil. Looking at the picture showing the propellor / engine separated from the rest, it's fortunate that the occupants weren't fatally injured....

They aren't having a lot of luck (pilot health apart) with their Sea Furies are they?

Just thinking about that incident, especially as the report say it just avoided housing.... Had Runway 22 been in use, the pilots might have force landed in the field behind my uncle's pub and they could have gotten "refreshments" there.....

Apparently it made it across the River Yeo and took out a few telegraph poles. Glad the Pilot is OK, but not so sure that she will fly again.

A new Charity “Navy Wings” had just taken over a couple of days ago, and I would suspect they may struggle with getting the old girl up and running: https://fleetairarmoa.org/news/charity- ... -of-nation

At least they still have the Stringbags left :thumright:

Is that the Lamb & Lark? They used to do fantastic Mexican food and a particular favourite for the disembarked squadrons.....especially Friday lunchtime, pre-happy hour at The Wardroom :D

No, I'm referring to the Halfway House......
