“Miss Velma” and “Berlin Express” damaged in separate incidents at Flying Legends

The TF-51D “Miss Velma” made a wheels-up landing during the Flying Legends airshow at Duxford this weekend. It appears the engine failed shortly before landing and the pilot made the quick decision to perform a wheels-up landing in a field. The aircraft suffered damage but the pilot was unhurt.

 

In a separate incident, the P-51B “Berlin Express”, which recently crossed the Atlantic to participate in the airshow, had its Malcolm hood disintegrate during a low pass, damaging the tail surfaces of the aircraft. Fortunately, nobody was hurt in this incident either.
