On oil survey work we would frequently set the alarm for about 3.30 am in southern Queensland, especially with summer approaching, to be airborne by first light. Bill Mitchell undoubtedly thought he should have slumbered on for another few minutes at least because, standing near a wingtip when he was seeing the aircraft off from the tarmac, he would give a thumbs up to indicate we were clear to go - but he would shine his torch on his thumb!
