VH-WAJ  Auster Mk III                                                 (c/n  330)


                                         Originally built (in 1942) as MZ218, this Auster went to the RAAF as A11-42 before being
                                         civilianized for the Wimmera Aero Club in 1959 as VH-WAJ.  Bob Neate's photo above was
                                         taken at Warracknabeal, Vic in November 1960.  The aircraft was damaged by a storm at
                                         Capella, Qld in 1974 and withdrawn from use.  It was restored in the 1990s as VH-DCU and,
                                         as such, is still flying.
