CAC CA-19 Boomerang

A46-206 VH-BOM


Taken at the Classic Fighters Airshow. April 14, 2001. Main undercarriage - port side looking inboard. Note the inlet on the wing root - this supplies cooling air to the cockpit - and on this aircraft is also used for an additional oil cooler. A lot of stencilling is visible - at the top is the 'U/C RAM ACCESS', and below that 'DISCONNECT ELECT_WIRING AND AILERON CABLES BEFORE REMOVING WINGS'. On the undercarriage door can be seen 'REBUILT BY SANDERS AIRCRAFT' and note pointing out tyre pressure is 55lbs.
