That's the trouble with tail draggers. You are always pushing uphill.

Special delivery of the Coffman Starter Trophy, just gotta wait for Nutty to tell us where to deliver it.
But Sarge how far do we have to push it, can't we just start the engines?
NOO WAY, Greta gets told every time we do that...

Not a caption.

Didnít they lop a bit off the wings of the Stirling so it would into the standard hangar with a resultant effect on its max altitude with a full load? Thought I read that on an Airfix kit.

Yup and it required a higher incidence for take off hence the main gear.

Simkins, for the last time "Bigboy" refers to the new large ordnance we will be droppin' from this 'ere kite on top of Jerry's head - it is not a reference to the Wing Co's ample girth or that strange Nav on F-Fairey's crew...
