J/5G Cirrus Autocar
This was the former DCA's VH-CAM the second. The
Department sold it in 1961. Despite
its rego, it
never was a part of the Illawarra Flying Club but was sold to Dr.
Melbourne. Geoff Goodall's shot above was taken at Horsham in
March of 1965. It then had
owners over the next few years. VH-FAM was sadly destroyed in a
fatal accident near
Victoria on 31 December1972. It was suspected that the elderly pilot
(whose PPL had
actually expired) suffered a heart attack.
