Powered by its single 600 hp Pratt & Whitney R-1340 Wasp radial engine, the CAC Wirraway carried a crew of two with the gunner/bomb aimer sitting behind the pilot in the fully enclosed sliding canopy on a rotatable folding seat. Both positions were equipped with flight controls echoing its original design and intention as an RAAF trainer.
Mounted just below the Wirraway's Manifold Preessure Gauge at the bottom right of the main flying panel, this early G6A/500277 Air Temp gauge features the enlarged indicator numerals of the early British, Australian and USAAF cockpit indicator gauges.
This CAC Wirraway Instrument comes complete with detailed Scale Model, Mango Wood Stand & Plaque plus Printed Fact Sheet featuring photo of instrument in aircraft cockpit.
