Pilot Anna Walker had to belly-land the Seafire SX336 at Bondues in France on July 2, at 5:30 PM local time. For an unknown reason, the gear did not extend. The aircraft landed on its belly and did a 180° turn before coming to rest. Fortunately, Anna Walker was not injured. It seems the aircraft suffered relatively light damage only.
Photos of the crash landing are available on Antoine Alacusos’ Flickr page. The photos show Anna Walker bringing the Spitfire in to a soft belly-landing. The prop shattered upon impact (probably saving the engine). Anna Walker is seen evacuating the aircraft on her own in the last pictures.
More information will be given as it becomes available.
