Republic F-84 G Thunderjet Stjørdalselva, Værnes

338 Squadron Royal Norwegian Air Force USAF c/n 51-16668 MU-T 11.11 1955

Two Thunderjets took off from Ørland airstrip at 11.00. They were simulating low pass attack on airfield Værnes airfield. Fenrik Per Matheson Brun was going to attack the airport control tower, while his wing man, Fenrik Arne Haave in MU-I went for one of the hangars. At 12.01 Fenrik Brun's Thunderjet suddenly crashed into the river and exploded. Reason of crash is not known, but possibly it was a "High-speed stall" source: Hans Olav Løkken.
