VH-AGQ (2) Auster 5 (later 5D)
A rather grainy shot from the Eric Wagner
collection of VH-AQD in its original configuration at
the 1950s. This machine was
the former RAF Taylorcraft Auster AOP Mk.V TJ262,
exported to Australia
in September 1953. Somewhere around the early 1960s the Lycoming
replaced with a Gipsy Major as seen in the photo below, taken by
Alistair Coutts at Jandakot
1965 (via the Geoff Goodall collection). Thereafter it was
referred to as an Auster 5D.
from use in 1967, it was restored in 1969 as VH-CKD.
