VH-SED  Auster V                                                (c/n  1668)

                                  Two almost identical shots taken at Bankstown seven years apart.  Greg Banfield's above was on
                                  Boxing Day in1968 whilst Brian Baker's (below) was in 1961.      This Auster was imported from
                                  Singapore in 1960 and re-registered by the simple expediency of changing the "R" in VR-SED to
                                  an "H".   Originally a Taylorcraft-built Auster V for the RAF, it was serialed TJ651 and was civilian-
                                  ized in the UK as G-APIC.  This aircraft is still on the current register, (surprisingly still as VH-SED).
