Take­off Bet!

Flight Journal - - AIRDROP - Tom Fey

Thanks for an­other great is­sue (“Op­er­a­tion Torch,” Au­gust 2017). As for the pro­to­type Seafire “land­ing,”

I’m bet­ting it is a take­off—the ab­sence of flaps and the A-frame tail­hook (the end of the hook is just vis­i­ble below the “7”) looks to be stowed. Or per­haps the pho­to­graph is of a taxi right af­ter land­ing (flaps up, hook up).
