Photo Comment

This aircraft was initially registered G-AJIM. It went to Denmark in 1948 as OY-AAK then returned to the UK in 1961, but was exported to Australia in 1971 and registered VH-AUO. Trailered to Melbourne from Perth over a week, its recent restoration in the hands of father and son team Frank and Scott Snibson took two years. The aircraft retains its 100 hp Cirrus Minor. Seen here airborne from Kyabram at the Antique Aeroplane Association of Australia's Auster Rally.
