VH-ADS (2)  Auster  J/5B Autocar                           (c/n  2947)


                                          Thus far I have not been able to glean a photo of this, the second VH-ADS showing the entire air-
                                          craft.  The above shot, from the Bob Neate collection, was taken at Wagga, NSW in August 1954
                                          whilst the aircraft was taking part in the Redex Air Trial which flew Sydney-Brisbane-Darwin-Alice
                                          Springs-Adelaide-Wagga-Sydney.     The Autocar was entered by Guinea Airways, Adelaide who
                                          had purchased it new in September 1952 for light charter, dingo baiting and aeria  surveys from the
                                          airline's Adelaide base.    That's Guinea Airways senior pilot Captain N. S. "Nobby" Buckley handling
                                          the refueling, who flew it solo in the trial.   The two shots below are from the South Australian Aviation
                                          Museum collection and show -ADS following a forced landing at Olary, SA near Broken Hill on
                                          4 September1954.   Guinea Airways traded the wreck to Auster agents Kingsford Smith Aviation
                                          Services in Sydney, wherein it was rebuilt it for resale to Bush Pilots Airways of Cairns, NQ who
                                          registered it VH-BPA. .
