VH-KAB  Auster J/1B Aiglet                                       (c/n  2644)


                                     Mr. Goodall has sent me a plethora of pictures of VH-KAB.  I'll display a few of them.  Seen
                                     above at Parafield, Adelaide, is the aircraft as it finished the 1964 R.M. Ansett Air Race in
                                     March 1964.  At this time, despite having come into the country in 1950, it was still resplendent
                                     in original Auster livery.   By the time Geoff sighted it at Jandakot in 1970 it had a rather plain,
                                     almost drab appearance (immediately below).  This had changed  by early 1977 into a more
                                     attractive orange and white checkerboard tail scheme seen in the lower shot, taken at Serpentine,
                                     WA in March of that year.   VH-KAB is still on the register and is still resident in West Aussie.
