These two Geoff Goodall shots
show this Auster going from the sublime (well, really gaudy, above)
when owned by a Perth physician, to the ridiculous (I mean, I've seen
PLAIN before, but.....) below.
Six years separate these images,
although they were both taken at Perth's Jandakot Airport. Top
was in February 1970 and bottom in October 1976. VH-UEA was
the former VH-BWJ. It was
struck from the register in 1979, but resurrected in 1998 as VH-JNT
prior to a possible restoration
Jonathon Collins of Conder, in the ACT. Its registration was
again cancelled in 2002,
but is possibly
still a candidate for a rebuild.
