One person is dead after a plane crash at Tynset Saturday afternoon. Police operations headquarters in Hamar could just after 19 PM Saturday night confirm that one person is dead.
The plane should have tipped around and crashed in connection with the landing at the airstrip at Tynset which is a button mil south of Trondheim city. Accident should have happened around the clock 18.45. The deceased was alone in the plane.
There must be a veteran, specifically a Spitfire fighter aircraft of the type that was used in World War II, which has crashed.
Sunday will be held at a larger flystevne Tynset airport, and it is probably one of the older aircraft will participate in which has tipped around.
I know it's the usual speculation, but IIRC in most nose over accidents, the fin collapses, and traps the pilot in a very bad position, bent over in a position where breathing becomes very difficult, or even impossible, e.g. Paul Morgan in his Sea Fury at Sywell a few years ago, Skyraider pilot in the States at an Airshow, a Harvard in the U.K. I would suggest that this may well be the case here. Sadly, all life has a risk element to it.

A question for those in the know. I'd be surprised if the original aircraft design didn't consider this. So far as I know this design included a sheet of armour plating to protect the pilot's head from 6 o'clock incoming. Is it possible that this plate was, in fact, dual purpose, the secondary purpose being pilot protection in a full nose over. Is it possible that the plates have, mistakenly, been removed as redundant?
