Auster J 5 Autocar ZK-AVN at Mandeville

For the edification of Baz, who enquired what the Auster that I saw under restoration at Mandeville was:  a recent photo has arrived of the restoration, as above.

It is Autocar ZK-AVN (c/n 2915).  Its last owner was Bob Udy of Te Anau from 1988.  It was noted as stored at Mandeville in 1994 and under restoration in 1998.  It was withdrawn and the registration was cancelled on 14/9/07, but seems that it will be seen flying again in the future.
