He's got lots of right rubber stomped in to offset the p-factor.

Good Morning. Nice picture. I was on a CV-580 tour of Australia in 2007. Pionair was the airline. They needed our 580 for a long term contract so good old VH-TMQ was chartered to fly a couple legs of our tour. Nice to see an old friend again. It looks to me like they are landing so maybe it's a crosswind they are using the rudder for. I realize no flaps.

Not wanting to nit pick but with the aircraft in level attitude there is no P factor caused by a nose high attitude with the descending blades of the props creating more thrust than the ascending ones - causing ther aircraft to yaw to the left and in turn corrected by use of right rudder. Perhaps in this case there was a crosswind from the left requiring some right rudder to keep her going straight.

No flaps suggests this is a take-off.

The photo was definitely taken on take off. I was there two days earlier when she arrived but didn't have my camera with me. There was a crosswind from the right at the time with the wind being 260 at 15 kts, on RWY 23.
