This aircraft has an interesting history: registered as a J.5P Autocar, it is clearly not one! It was built as a J.5L Aiglet Trainer (short, aerobatic wings; 145 hp Gipsy Major 10) for agents KSAS and shipped, engineless to Australia. Registered VH-BYW 20 September 1955. Type changed to J.5R Alpine on 7 Oct 1966 following fitting of longer-span, ex-Autocar wings. Somehow this changed to J.5P on the Register! Currently based at Moorabbin & seen here at the Antique Aeroplane Assoc. of Aust's National Fly-in

This 1976 Lance appears to have been registered N222CR before being exported to Australia in 1989 and registered VH-OEL on 19 September that year. In 2007 it was advertised for sale in Darwin with the engine removed and looking pretty tatty. It obviously underwent a restoration not long before being photographed here departing after the Antique Aeroplane Association of Australia's National Fly-in and airshow.
