VH-KAN   Auster J/5B Autocar                               (c/n  2919)


                               Imported new in 1951.  It was sold to the Lutheran Mission Inc in Madang, New Guinea that
                               same year.  Unfortunately its career was short lived as it crashed between Goroka and Madang
                               on 6 August 1951 killing the pilot;  Ian O'Neill reports:  "It took three days to locate the wreckage".
                               My photograph was taken at Bankstown days after it "came out of the box".
