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 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.
