Taken at F330. South China Sea just after a typhoon had passed so the fishing vessels were out in force. Not much future if one is a squid in these waters.

Dunno if it was much modified airframe wise from a Wirraway but I have flown in a CA 28 Ceres and it was pretty predictable and docile.

The design that emerged, while superficially similar to the Wirraway, was really a new type that used some Wirraway components rather than a conversion. The only major components used in both types without alteration were the tail group and the landing gear. The fuselage was completely new, with a 41 cubic ft (1.16 cubic m) hopper installed between the engine and the high-mounted single-seat cockpit. The Wirraway wing was substantially altered for use in the Ceres. The outer wing panels had slotted trailing-edge flaps, fixed leading-edge slats and increased span and area compared to the Wirraway, while the centre-section was structurally altered to accommodate the hopper, the higher weights of the Ceres, the different flaps (the Wirraway had split flaps) and the new type's fixed landing gear as opposed to the Wirraway's retractable gear (the same landing gear legs were used however). The engine was the same as that fitted to the Wirraway, a Pratt & Whitney R-1340 driving a three-bladed variable-pitch propeller.
source, if you believe Wiki

Tipan13, looks like the Broome-Curtin track, about twenty miles to run Curtin. possibly the gulf near Derby.

Hey Doc, I see a spare bit of panel just above your 430 in the stack where you can put another GPS. I don't think you have enough!

Talk about "Information Overload"

And at 1500AGL the PC cuts out the porno channel and back to approach mode with approach plates, maps, weather.......all automatically!

No wonder the FTDK is your favourite machine

For when the prehistoric steam driven stuf fails...........as is shown by the U/S DME and a recent air pump and associated A/H did.
