The CAC Wirraway was a 2 seater World War II training and general purpose military aircraft manufactured in Australia by the Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation (CAC) between 1939 and 1946. The aircraft was an Australian development of the T-6 Texan training aircraft. During World War II, the Wirraway served as the starting point for the design of the emergency fighter CAC Boomerang. The name 'Wirraway' is Aboriginal word meaning "Challenge."
Following the Japanese entry into World War II, the Wirraway was used as a stop-gap fighter by the RAAF. Whilst the Wirraway proved to be completely unsuited for this role, it was fairly successful as a close air support aircraft, and when the rear passenger was removed, bombs could be placed on the planes wings to make it a light bomber.
