Narrative:
The aircraft was destroyed during a forced landing following a loss of engine power. The 1950 Hawker Sea Fury T Mk 20 took off from RNAS Yeovilton at 14:09 on a local training flight. Following a loss of oil pressure, the pilot attempted to turn back to the airport. After the engine suddenly stopped in final approach to runway 01, a forced landing was attempted.
The aircraft came down in a field, about 1 km from the threshold of runway 01. The engine separate from the fuselage and both wings broke off as the aircraft rolled inverted.
Both occupants suffered minor injuries.
