Eastern Aircraft (Grumman) FM-2 Wildcat

N5833 (BuNo 86819)


Taken at Tauranga Airport, 23 March, 2002. The canopy and cockpit as seen from forward and starboard looking to the rear. The exterior had just been washed - hence the water droplets visible on the transparencies. Although the light is from the wrong angle, the seat and headrest can just be seen. Note the windscreen attachment.
