Sea Fury T20 VX281/G-RNHF getting airborne for the second test flight at North Weald on 2 September. HARRY MEASURES

Naval Aviation Ltd’s Hawker Sea Fury T20, VX281/G-RNHF, flew again at North Weald on 1 September for the first time since it suffered an engine failure and undercarriage collapse during the RNAS Culdrose Air Day in July 2014. The CO of the Royal Navy Historic Flight, Lt Cdr Chris Götke, was again at the controls of the Bristol Centaurus-powered fighter trainer — having been awarded the Air Force Cross for his expert emergency landing at Culdrose — and the aircraft is due to fly back to its base at RNAS Yeovilton once five hours’ test flying has been completed.
