J/4 Archer (c/n 2082)
This Auster has my initials
(Albert Edward Coates). I never used Albert when growing up,
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
moniker of late.
VH-AEC was re-registered VH-KFE
in 1959. I shot this photograph of it at Bankstown in 1955.
