Auster J/1 Autocrat
Autocrat was originally imported in 1951, being ex G-AIBP. Greg
Banfield saw it an an air show
at Point Cook,
Victoria in December 1975 following a rebuild. Nice
to see it in original Autocrat
livery. It seems to have been withdrawn from use not long
after that and the black and white photo
below by Norm Weeding showing it with its prop
missing, was probably taken around 1977, although
the date and venue have been lost.
Anyway, some years later it was resurrected and Phil Vabre
provides a more
contemporary shot of it (foot of page) taken at the Avalon Airshow
in Feb 2003.
