VX281/120-VL Sea Fury T20S suffered an engine failure at about 2,000ft during its display, with extremely professional flying,
the pilot made an emergency engine off landing, he did not lower the undercarriage until the last second to avoid the aircraft from stalling,
unfortunately the starboard undercarriage did not fully lock and it collapsed when it came in contact with the runway, causing the port undercarriage to also collapse.
The aircraft veered onto the grass where the pilot made his escape. Hopefully the aircraft can be rebuilt by the Royal Navy Historic Flight and return to
next year’s air show circuit.
