Eastern Aircraft (Grumman) FM-2 Wildcat

N5833 (BuNo 86819)


Taken at Tauranga Airport, 23 March, 2002. Gear coming up. The Wildcat was accompanied by the two seat P-40N-1, in which Dave Morss had been ferried to Tauranga. The aircraft took off to the south and after getting cleaned up made a nice dumb bell turn before returning for a low pass along the runway as they headed north.
