VH-FAM  Auster J/5G Cirrus Autocar                                 (c/n  3094)


                                     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. J.W.Arundell in
                                     Melbourne.  Geoff Goodall's shot above was taken at Horsham in March of 1965.  It then had
                                     several owners over the next few years.  VH-FAM was sadly destroyed in a fatal accident near
                                     Colac, Victoria on 31 December1972. It was suspected that the elderly pilot (whose PPL had
                                     actually expired) suffered a heart attack.
