PINING FOR THE FJORDS
To close a highly successful spotting season, the lads thought they would take advantage of a "Ryanair cheapie" to spend a weekend in Norway chasing Wrecks and Relics. The collection at Gardermoen was an obvious objective, but there was plenty more to have a go at, for although Norway is a vast country, the population (both people and aircraft) is concentrated in the South.
Immediately after landing at Torp we met our guide, Tom, for a tour around Dakota Norway, operators of a former Finnish AF C-53D and their sister organisation Dakota Norway Fighter Divison who have a fine collection of classic jet fighters. These comprise an ex Danish F-84G Thunderjet, an RF-84F Thunderflash (with rear half donated from a Danish example), a CF-104 Starfighter and an ex Danish F-86D Sabre. In fact, until early October they had no less than three examples, two (F-977, F-984) having left for the museum at Ugglarp, Sweden, about 3 weeks before our visit. A good reason to go to Ugglarp again! In fact the wings were still present awaiting the next lorry. All three Sabres were imported to Norway in 1992 for use as BDR airframes at Kjevik, the RNorAF technical training school.
The afternoon was spent visiting some small civil fields with ex military residents. This involved a drive up into the higher ground – and a snowstorm. I had thought that at the end of October we would be OK as regards the weather, however the forecast for the weekend was dire, though in the event the impending apocalypse was delayed a day or two and caused us no major problems. That said, it was a good job we didn't have to go any further into the high ground before retracing our steps to Oslo. Apart from the light fields, we also pulled in the Volvo Aero factory at Kongsberg which is guarded by another CF-104 Starfighter.
Unusually for one of my trips, we ran out of aeroplanes before we ran out of daylight, though some considerable time was then spent looking for an affordable hotel. Norway is not a cheap country! No beers on this trip (£6-£8 a pint), £4 a hot dog, £10 a burger, £3 a coke. We took full advantage of the breakfast buffet the following morning to set us up for the rest of the day.
Sunday morning we had arranged to visit Kjeller. Our guides at Kjeller Flyhistorisk Forening delighted in telling us that theirs is the oldest military airfield in Europe. The field now has an RNorAF depot on one side which overhauls Sea Kings and F-16s, and has a Starfighter on the gate. The other end has the light civil, including some superb warbirds. I had not realised that Tiger Moths were licence built in Norway, even less was I aware that the Norwegians armed some Tiger Moths with machine guns, firing through the propeller arc. 189 is a Norwegian built Tiger Moth and flew again on 30.8.06 after more than 8 ½ years under restoration. ATC at Kjeller is conducted in English, but communication with the tower and 189 is all in Norwegian. Although registered LN-KFT, the controllers insist that 189 uses the call-sign "189". The Norwegians are justifiably proud of their aviation heritage! From the same De Havilland stable was ex Swiss Vampire J-1146, now LN-JET. She last flew during Summer 2005 and now needs major work on the hydraulics, the economics of which dictate that her flying days are over. KFF are also restoring a Maurice Farman Shorthorn that belonged at one time to the explorer Roald Amundsen. Still not quite sure if this machine has a military pedigree.
After a leisurely and productive morning being well looked after by KFF, we went up the road to check out the RNorAF collection at Gardermoen. Although a museum to you and me, Gardermoen cannot be called an RNorAF Museum as THE RNorAF Museum is in the far, far, distant North at Bodo. A nightmare tale of politics and bureaucracy which would make an article in itself…... However, whatever its official status the museum/collection at Gardermoen has a fine collection of former Norwegian military aircraft and World War 2 relics recovered from remote lakes and mountains. A second Ju.88 from the restoration workshop has recently left for the DTM at Berlin. A further bit of DH education is the fact that the ex Swedish Vampire T.55 was built as a single seater and was one of a number of Swedish Vampires rebuilt as trainers. I wouldn't have thought it was worth the bother – why not just buy new or second hand trainers? Obviously the Swedes thought otherwise.
Final stop of the day was the military museum (Forsvarsmuseet) at Akershus in Oslo city centre. This has a Tiger Moth, a Cornell, and a sizeable chunk of Norwegian military history. Some of the captions are superb! A canon "Bearing the monogamous of King Christian" and the 18th century cart for transporting the dead and wounded which "Took eight years of testing". We also couldn't help noticing that the area around the museum seems to be the Oslo red light area, surprisingly active for an icy cold Sunday afternoon and unusual to see the world’s oldest profession being plied in 'cold weather gear'.
Last stop was a second attempt (having failed yesterday) to find a Safir at Tonsberg/Jarlsberg. We succeeded in finding the airfield this time, but finding the way in proved a time consuming challenge which meant that when we finally got to the relevant hangar, darkness had fallen and the locals had all gone home. One for our next visit to the fjords. So back to Torp and a long wait for the late evening flight back to Stansted. Roll on next season.
