Yesterday afternoon, Norwegian Spitfire Foundation operated Hawker Sea Fury T.20 G-INVN WG655 had to make a successfull forced landing due to an engine failure. Chief pilot Eskil Amdal did a very good job getting the aircraft down. Eskil and his passenger suffered only minor injuries. ... See MoreSee Less

So relieved to hear Eskil and his passenger are okay NSF, the flying skill by Eskil to force land due to engine failure saved their lives. Aeroplanes can be restored, totally different for humans as we know. Thank you for the update NSF, and we wish Eskil and his passenger well, & full recovery from any injuries suffered ❤️🤍💙 🇳🇴🇳🇴

When I first saw the news and the the initial photos of the T.20 ‘Invincible’, I immediately thought of Eskil and phoned a dear friend in the UK to see if he was flying her and if he was okay! I was relieved to hear that he and his passenger received only minor injuries! Amen! So sorry to hear the sad news though of the forced landing as the result of engine issues. I was able to see and photograph Eskil in the T.20 at the 2019 Flying Legends Airshow at Duxford. Great memories! My thoughts and prayers are with Eskil and his passenger for a quick and complete recovery and to you all at the Norwegian Spitfire Foundation that you will be able to recover the Sea Fury and get her into a shop to be rebuilt and return her to the air! All the best to you all!

Great airmanship to get her down as he did. 👍

The airframe did its job and kept Eskil and his pax from suffering fatal injuries. Whether it ever flies again matters not, getting Eskil back fit and flying is the main priority..

Sorry to hear about the Sea Fury forced landing. Very relieved to hear that pilot and passenger were not seriously injured. Hairy few minutes for Eskil - Sea Furys are not the easiest aircraft to carry out an emergency landing in - very skilful pilot. Best wishes to him and the passenger for a speedy recovery.

Great news that Eskil and his passenger are both in good health all things considering! Wishing them both a complete and speedy recovery!

Well done Eskil. I was very happy to hear that pilot and passenger were safe! Let's hope that this beautiful beast can be rebuilt. She's a firm favourite of mine on the airshow circuit.

Relieved to hear the pilot and pax are OK - so sorry for the aircraft though...

Relief. I thought of Eskil Amdal the moment I saw the picture of the downed Sea Fury yesterday. My thoughts to him, his family and the passanger. Taz deserves a pretty good slap on his back. Well done.

Good airmanship to bring that bird down so well. And best wishes for a speedy recovery both for Eskil Amdal and his passenger.

Thank you for the update, very pleased to hear pilot and passenger are safe, however my sympathies are with you for the lovely old Seafury.

Glad that the occupants only suffered minor injuries. The aircraft can be repaired/rebuilt - people, not so much!

Well done in what must have been a difficult situation, Eskil Amdal!😊👍 Wish both of you a quick and healthy recovery.♥️

Well executed Eskil Amdal. If an engine has to fail, who could ask for a better guy to handle it....Any landing you can walk away from.... 😉

Great news and good job of Eskil! I hope that the plane can be restored to fly again 🤞🙏

Glad both are OK it's a shame about the sea fury but the lives are more important

So glad to know that Pilot Eskil, and his passenger suffered only minor injuries, sending them best wishes for a speedy recovery. 🙏 🤝

The most important is that they are both OK. Good recovery for them.

Excellent airmanship. I wish Eskil and his passenger a speedy recovery. 👍🏻😄

Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

Great to hear both are OK. Hope the repair can happen smoothly

Well done and speedy recovery!! Blue skies!

Well done emergency-landing....and both OK is top 👍👍👍

Glad Eskil & his passenger are ok.

Glad to hear Eskil & passenger are OK. Must have been a wild ride when the aircraft broke apart! 😲

This weeks post shows the Mustang and the mighty Sea Fury taking a break between flights, with the Mustang captured by Liam from Elliptical Photography a few days ago at Duxford. The Sea Fury was beautifully captured at Hahnweide in 2019 by Louisa Noël who admits to being a big fan of the Sea Fury. Thank you both very much again for allowing me to be able to share your photo’s.
Both aircraft are owned by Shaun Patrick and operated by the Norwegian Spitfire Foundation at air shows on the owners behalf.

Birger Tidemand-Johannessen during his time in Little Norway. Most likely a photograph in honor of the press team present, however it looks like he first made solo!

Birger Tidemann Johansen var min sløydlærer på Berles skole 1962 - 64. Han kjørte en Sunbeam bil og var guttas helt.

Var min sklyflærer på Bjørnegård ungdomsskole. Fantastisk kar som har skrevet bok om sine opplevelser. Fortalte at han ble skutt ned og fikk en lunge ødelagt. Topp kar!!
