VH-BOJ (2) Auster J/1
This ancient Autocrat was
built in 1946 as G-AGXD. It was exported to Australia in
VH-DDY. It was re-registered VH-RQJ in 1959 and
re-identified again in 1961 to VH-BOJ(2).
along the way it traded its 100 hp Blackburn Cirrus Minor for a 120 hp
and at the same time had its glazing area reworked so that its final
appearance made it look for
world like a Piper PA-12. Quite nice, actually.
It was withdrawn from use in 1974.
Bob Livingston's shot
(above, via Geoff Goodall) was taken at Archerfield in August 1966 when
aircraft sported a yellow and white paint scheme.
