VH-KAL Auster J/5B Autocar
Four shots of this Auster which was first
registered to KSAS in Bankstown in late 1950. It flew
with the Royal
Aero Club of WA in the 1955-59 period and was, at that time, painted
all red, as
the image below from a Don Ende slide, taken at Maylands in 1957.
The shot above, by
Geoff Goodall, shows it at Northam, WA in 1971 wearing a "modern" red
and white livery. This
followed a complete rebuild in 1966. It has, I believe, been current
ever since. Immediately below,
Serpentine, WA in another Goodall shot, it had been reduced to a plain
all-over silver finish.
Finally, at the foot of
the entry is a contemporary image by Phil Vabre, taken at the AAAA
Wentworth, NSW in October 2007.
