The chance of making a forced landing on water in a Typhoon [www2 version] was not a good idea the air scoop on the front would fill up with water, and then the aircraft flipped on its back. Only a few pilots managed to escape from a force landing on water.
Mind you the Euro fighter Typhoon that crashed at Conisby a while back made a good job of removing a fair bit of turf.

Hi All

Does anyone have any information on a hawker typhoon of 609 Squadron that was Hit by flak and ditched 100 yards off Deal on 8th August 1943, The aircraft was Hawker Typhoon JP390 PR-J and the pilot was Flt.Lt Smith based at RAF Lympne

I believe the wreckage was towed out to sea and sank?? Anyone know the position?

also  31 October 1942 Hawker Typhoon R7708 PR V P/O Payne
. Shot down by 'Friendly Fire', ditched in Pegwell Bay. Wreckage recovered in 199?

Many Thanks
