Top honor for brave UK Navy pilot
from Harwich and Manningtree Standard
A Royal Navy pilot who landed his stricken historic aircraft after it plunged to the ground following engine failure has received the highest peacetime honor for gallantry in the air. Lieutenant Commander Chris Gotke, 45, was faced with the decision of either bailing out by parachute at low level or staying with the Hawker Sea Fury and trying to land when things when wrong during a display last July.
