RNHF Sea Fury T20 emergency landing at RNAS Culdrose

The Royal Navy Historic Flight (RNHF) Sea Fury T20 (G-RNHF) made an emergency landing at RNAS Culdrose in Cornwall during the Air Day on Thursday 31st July 2014. The pilot, Chris Gotke, walked away uninjured.

Eyewitnesses reported that the aircraft appeared to lose power and made an emergency landing. The final flying displays at RNAS Culdrose were stopped after the crash.

Eyewitness Andy Aitcheson, said: "The plane came straight in to land but his wheels never came fully down. The wheels then just dropped and then touched the ground.

"His undercarriage collapsed and rolled into the grass. Fortunately, the pilot walked away very quickly."

The Royal Navy said the "investigation process has been initiated".
