Once more, an outstanding image Jay. That POV begs a question from this non pilot. Given that we can now see how little the pilot can see forward – how on earth do you line up on the runway for take-off? As in – you accelerate at full noise – bowling down the runway – the tail comes up so at last you can see forward...... and your heading straight at a fuel bowser waiting at the end of the ramp – your miles away from the centre line of the runway. Gulp!
You are on you side of the runway at a 45deg angle and wait until the guy in front of you tailwheel lifts off the runway then you turn straight and apply power slowly until you have you T/O MP and your are in the air...
