Probably Lars Ness, but Lars Ulrich would be an interesting twist 😛🥁

I'd hazard a guess it's the very talented Lars Ness!

Lars Ness or Eskil 😎

I agree. Eskil Amdal.

Lars only wears a leather C-Type helmet.

Anders Sæther passed away just recently. Anders was a pioneer in the warbirds community in Norway and in Europe. Many have a lot to thank Anders for. He inspired and included so many into the historic aviation community.

May he rest in peace.
