I'll give it a try too.

edit: Okay, it is just a thumbnail. Lithy, how did you put the pic up without the attachment thing?

I hate when big pics get posted. Make me have to scroll to read or see the photos. The old thumbnails were the best way.

Wirraway

VH-BFB. Lives at Wangaratta in the care of Murray Griffith. Thanks to Murray I had about 2 hours flying in it while on CASA duties.

I found the performance disappointing....with only about half fuel and two bods on board...how it must have been with a full military load of bombs, 3 machine guns and ammo etc....must have been frightening.....and as you've probably heard or read very careful handling is needed low down at low speeds....very easy to 'flick' in turns with too much G loading.

Weird (1930's) hydraulics for gear and flaps made touch and go landings a challenge....then again..maybe I've been spoilt by modern types.

Thanks Whiterider. I had a bit to do with Wirraways, being involved with the Moorabbin Air Museum (having A20-10, the oldest survivor) and working on Borge and Anthony Sorensen's A20-722. I even had a fabric side panel hanging on my wall, I regret swapping it!

Cheers,
Matt

I agree the new picture posts are hard to see. That thumbnail from swallfield was perfect. Chud
