Photo Comment

The Aiglet Trainer is an aerobatic version of the Auster with shorter wings. This one came to Australia in June 1954, being the former G-AMOV. After spending 15 years mainly in outback Queensland, it was withdrawn from service in 1969. Following restoration it was re-registered on 14 March 1988.
