Blazing Cat Fur
Note: The plane is a Spitfire Replica
Very little damage it looks like.
Many Spits had break away wooden props to negate greater crash damage to the engine and air frame that metal props could cause during belly landings. Looks like this replica might have been similarly equipped.
Beautiful. Anyone you can walk away from is a good one.
What’s the old saying? “Any landing you can walk away from is a good landing”.
I’m glad it was only a replica. I hate to see those beautiful old planes get damaged.
Those elliptical wings are great for more than just tight turns in a horizontal battle. They make a great platform for belly landings as well.
