The left hand picture shows P-51's, but, yes, the right hand shows P-47's.

So in future will Norwegian ships need an escort vessel when they enter places like this ?

A Fjord Escort so to speak.

Looked more like an unintentional Fjord Connect to me!

Alongside at Håkonsvern naval base.*
At a press conference today, they claim they will have it float into dock in 5-6 weeks time.*

If only they had a Fjord Fairlane with no conflicting traffic. Perhaps they could use Fjord [email protected] to show the way at night, and a Fjord Ranger to tell the distance from obstructions?
If they hit a foreign ship, they'd need a Fjord Consul too...

Is there some way to squeeze the Vogons and Fjord Prefect in here too?

Norway is an area where a few WW2 German ships got spectacular damage.

Gneisenau:

Gneisenau - Gallery - Operation "Juno"

Prinz Eugen:

Lutzow:

All the ships got home and were repaired.

To be fair they probably would have been better off going to the med and tying up along side one of the Islands there like Cortina or Capri or hiding somewhere close to High Sierra mountains rather than making a right Model T of themselves in Norway.
