Auster J/5G Cirrus Autocar
This Auster has now been
restored to an immaculate maroon and white paint job, given a
Lycoming engine, and is
now reclassified as a J-5G/A. (At one time it also had spats). A
nice contemporary shot of it (at
Redcliffe, Qld, January 2011) by Ian Mcdonell is seen
below. The above photo, by David Eyre (via Geoff Goodall) was
taken at West Maitland,
NSW, in September 1965 when -WED was a true Cirrus Autocar.
(for Australia) this aircraft has kept its same identity since
it was first imported in 1956. With-
drawn in 1982, it was restored in
1988, and re-emerged still as VH-WED. .
