Norway didn’t produce any biplane fighter aces during the Second World War. On the morning of 9 April 1940 Jagevingen (Norwegian Fighter Wing) based on Oslo/Fornebu had seven operational Gloster Gladiators. Almost all of them and their base at Fornebu were lost in the first hours of the German invasion, but not before the Norwegian pilots had made a good account for themselves.
Following Gladiator pilots from Jagevingen made claims during these chaotic hours:
|Name||Biplane victories||Total no. of victories||Note|
|Arve Braathen||1 damaged||1 damaged|
|Dag Krohn||2||2||Top Norwegian biplane pilot.|
|Kristian Fredrik Schye||1||1|
