VH-KCJ  Auster J/1N Aiglet II                                   (c/n  3356)


                                       Named Alpha in the UK, several J/1Ns were imported into Australia in the late 1950s where they
                                       were known as Aiglet IIs.  The nice Greg Banfield shot of -KCJ above shows it in original livery
                                       at an Aiglet at Dubbo, NSW in February 1974.  'Dubbo Aero & Gliding Club' reads the legend.                                 
                                       The Mike Vincent photo below was taken a year later in Bathurst in March 1975 by which time
                                        the aircraft had moved on to the Bathurst Soaring Club.   It is currently owned by Doug Sprigg of
                                       Arkaroola Resort, South Australia, and finished in an earlier Auster livery, as seen in Phil Vabre's
                                       contemporary (albeit very close-up) shot  taken at Broken Hill in October 2009.
