Eastern Aircraft (Grumman) FM-2 Wildcat

N5833 (BuNo 86819)


Taken at Tauranga Airport, 23 March, 2002. Main undercarriage as seen from starboard looking to port. As the head visible on the other side shows, it is possible to look clear through the fuselage. This view shows the attachements forward of the main oleo, and up into the fuselage to the bottom of the oil tank. As well as the undercarriage, there's a lot of plumbing in here.
