VH-AFD  Auster J/2 Arrow     (c/n  2386)


                            The third VH-AFD was an Auster Archer, seen here at Bankstown in 1955.  This machine was
                            originally built as OO-AXE and shipped to Belgium. It was sold in the U.K. in 1951 as G-AJXZ
                            and arrived in Australia in May of 1952.   Geoff Goodall (below) saw it at a country fly-in at Bruce
                            Rock, WA in 1976 by which time it had a decidely "un-Auster-like" livery.   It was still flying into
                            the 1990s.
