Auster J/5G Cirrus Autocar (c/n
The Autocar is recognizable by its
slightly humpback appearance, necessitated by the
of the rear fuselage to accommodate the four seats (as opposed to the
Autocrat). VH-BYP was originally VH-KBZ.
My shot above was taken at Bankstown
in 1955, whilst the color slide below was taken by Geoff
Goodall at Mangalore in April 1983.
The Autocar was
active until 2008 when it was withdrawn from use.
