This Terrier belongs to the President of the Antique Aeroplane Association of Australia and attended the Association's Auster Rally at a dry and dusty Wentworth. The last 'true' Auster, the Beagle Terrier was a civil conversion from the military Auster AOP.6. Only 45 Terrier 2s were built, 64 Terriers in all, so this is a fairly rare aircraft.

Looking due west down the 1830 m Runway 27. During the Second World War Mildura was a major fighter OTU and you can still make out the original third cross runway. In more recent times, Mildura was the base for Murray Valley Airlines, later Southern Australia Airlines.

Based in Ballarat, it's seen here shutting down on arrival at the Antique Aeroplane Association's Auster Rally.

'Dorothy May' at the Antique Aeroplane Association of Australia's Auster Rally. Imported in 1953, this aircraft was somewhat unusual for an Aussie Auster in not being new - it was the former G-AIBL. It served for a time in the 1960s with the Illawarra Flying School in NSW. Based at Tyabb during the '90s, it is now resident in SA.

It's pretty good when you can park a visiting Aerobat in the back yard, as my friends Colin and Jenny can! This 1970-model was first registered in Australia on 4 January 1972 and is currently based at Albury. It's the fourth aircraft to carry this rego, the others being a Skylane, a Skywagon and a Pawnee, not to mention a C-47 during the War that was allocated the radio callsign VHCDW.

The Register records this aircraft has having been first registered on 3 September 1959, however Eddie Coates has a photo (and memories) of it when it was based in Launceston, Tas, in the early 50s. In any case, it's now based in NSW and still looking very nice! Photographed here at the Antique Aeroplane Association of Australia's Auster Rally.

This Chippie is ex RAF Rhodesian Air Training Group which means that it did not serve in the UK but was supplied new to Rhodesia with 69 others. However it appears never to have been assembled in Rhodesia as it was sold with nil hours flown via DH South Africa to Australia. One of the original three Chipmunks acquired by the Royal Victorian Aero Club and registered VH-RVZ in September 1954. Sold in 1965 and became VH-RTW.
