The museum’s Auster was purchased by the RCAF in 1948, but spent most of its air force life in storage. When it was sold to a private company in 1957, it had accumulated only 22 flight hours. It is currently painted in RCAF silver training colour scheme, however the civilian registration number as used by previous owner has been maintained on the tail.
