Operational Advise on my base WW2. In the event of an airborne engine failure, don't try and save the aircraft just bail out.

This aircraft was underpowered in the air and nose heavy on the ground.

This aircraft was apparently designed as a preliminary trainer to the Wirraway. It even had a dummy undercarriage lever, although it had fixed gear.
It was supposed to be a primary trainer for those who would progress to the
more advanced Wirraway. But it was a very inadequate aircraft. As mentioned in my previous comment it lacked power, reliability, and care had to be taken when using the brakes taxiing to avoid nosing over. I never felt comfortable flying it. My log book shows the least number of hours of any aircraft I flew.
