VH-WFB (1) Auster J/5
Auster was with the Wagga Air Taxi & Flying School when this shot,
by Ben Dannecker
was taken at
Cootamundra, NSW in 1959. This thriving Wagga
based outfit conducted
flying training at several towns
across southern NSW for many years. VH-WFB was formerly
VH-KSR and was re-registered into the
Flying School's block in January 1958. When sold in
July 1960 it became VH-WEA.
And, as so happens in the confusing Australian civil register,
the company acquired another
Auster, this time a J/1 Autocrat, and registered it as VH-WFB
January of 1962.
