This beautifully restored Bird Dog even has the smoke marker rocket tubes beneath its wings. Originally USAF 51-12471. Although registered in Australia on 17 December 1996, this Bird Dog was imported in 1989 from Vietnam. Its restoration started in 1992 and took 9 years - it's very original and in magnificent condition in these colourful South Vietnamese Air Force markings. Short final at the Antique Aeroplane Association of Australia's Auster Rally.
