                      PART III - HANDLING

    (b)  In cross wind conditions, gentle braking is necessary to
         keep straight until the rudder becomes effective.
    (c)  Ease the nosewheel off at about 125 knots and hold it
         just off the runway, taking care not to achieve an
         excessively nose-up attitude. At normal loads the aircraft
         will unstick at 150 knots.
    (d)  When comfortably airborne apply the brakes and raise
         the undercarriage holding the brakes on until the under-
         carriage is locked up.  There is no noticeable change of
         trim as the undercarriage retracts but the nosewheel locks
         up with a distinct thud.  It may be necessary to climb
         quite steeply initially as retraction must be complete
         before 250 knots is reached.
    (e)  Until experience is gained the lightness of the flying
         controls may lead to over-controlling in both pitch and
    (f)  When carrying stores
         Using 38° flap the nosewheel can be eased off at 125
         knots and the aircraft flown off at 145-150 knots.  When
         safely airborne immediately raise the undercarriage and
         then the flaps, 1 notch at a time retrimming after each
         selection; delay in raising the flaps will result in an
         increasing nose-down change of trim as speed increases.
    (g)  Short take-off
         Only a small reduction in ground run is achieved by
         using 38°flap, however the distance to 50' is appreciably
         shortened.  A strong nose-up change-of-trim and a small
A.L.1      amount of sink occurs when the flaps are raised.  It is
         recommended that flaps should not be used during
         formation take-offs.

    69.  Climbing
         NOTE.-If pressure has been set OFF for take-off,
               set it ON at 5,000ft.
