VH-GVC  Auster J/5B Autocar                      (c/n  2922)


                                Formerly known as Goulburn Valley Air Services (hence the -GV rego), Southern Airlines used the
                                little Autocar as an air taxi to service the rural areas of southern Victoria.          Its chief clients were
                                farmers and ranchers.  It was imported by Kingsford Smith Aviation Services (like all Austers were
                                in the 1950s) and first registered VH-KAX.  When Southern's routes were acquired by Ansett-ANA,
                                the assets were sold off and -GVC became VH-ASZ.         It was current into the 1980s but its final
                                disposition is not known.
