VH-BNA Auster J/5B
This was the former VH-RNA. Geoff
Goodall, who took the above shot at Parafield in May
1963, reports that "
the owner of -BNA flew all over Australia in it taking movies of
events, then lived a gypsy life showing
his movies in halls in country towns for a small fee. He
nicknamed the Auster
'Banana' because of its reg, and promoted his movies as 'Adventures of
Banana and me'. He flew into Emu Field in 1967 to film the
Parafield boys trucking the Mustangs
out and filmed the first
flight of A68-1". Oh, for a copy of that movie!
VH-BNA is still on the
register and is based
nowadays in South Australia.
