Grumman Martlet (Wildcat) Mk.I

Shown here is a Martlet Mk.1 that has just taken off the flight deck of the escort carrier HMS Audacity. Note the narrow-tracked undercarriage which caused the aircraft to rock from side to side on deck when the ship rolled. Taken from Allied Escort Carriers of World War Two in Action.
