Photographer's Remark

The Warrigal I was built at the Government Experimental Aircraft Factory in Sydney, flying for the first time on December 4, 1928. Delivered to the RAAF at Point Cook in January 1929. It had amassed only 40 hours when it suffered undercarriage damage in a heavy landing. The photo is believed to be that accident. Already assessed as unacceptable for RAAF service because of its dangerous spin characteristics, the Warrigal I was written off. Photo from: Hood Collection/State Library of New South Wales
