Rob:
In this hemisphere aircraft roll to a takeoff. Are we to take it that down there they run until they get airborne?
Just asking.

...One of the many reasons why spring-loaded landing gear did not become production standard. This is what the pilots called the 'slinky' effect...

That T-6s older brother is a training airplane and it certainly appears the pilot needs some training in when to raise the landing gear handle. Caption? Timing is everything!

I would assume that they had a new Commanding Officer very shortly after that and that one "hot shot" pilot was on his way to the "Eastern Front"

No the CO stayed. The Wirraway was getting a bit old by then and the boggied up the report to make it landing gear malfunction.
I think that the pilot went on to be, at least, an Air Comodore.

Thanks for the captions, the aircraft is a Wirraway, the pilot is not Archer, who did shoot down a Zero in a similar machine, this particular pilot[who's name escapes me], was renound for this type of take off, in Beaufighter's when flying with 30 Sqn RAAF.
