VH-AEC  Auster J/4 Archer    (c/n  2082)


                                This Auster has my initials (Albert Edward Coates).  I never used Albert when growing up, since it
                                was my Dad's name, and the appendage "Jr." is not used in the UK, or indeed, Australia.  So I became
                                "Eddie".  I shortened it to "Ed" when I came to the US, but have tended to revert to my boyhood
                                moniker of late.
                                VH-AEC was re-registered VH-KFE in 1959.   I shot this photograph of it at Bankstown in 1955.
