VH-RNA  (1)   Auster J/5B Autocar                            (c/n  3167)


                                  The grainy shot above shows the flagship of the Royal Newcastle Aero Club about to depart
                                  from a strip in NSW sometime in the 1950s.  I have lost the provenance of this photograph,
                                  but it is not my own.  Darryl Connel's photo (below, via Geoff Goodall) shows it still with the
                                  Royal Newcastle visiting Bankstown in May 1960.   After the club sold it in 1963 it became
                                  VH-BNA and is still on the current Australian register.
