Remark Photographer
VH-RIE (cn 3151) This unique aircraft was the only one of its kind ever made. Originally built as the only Blackburn-engined, aerobatic J.5K G-AMYI, 23 Feb 53. Converted to Gipsy-engined J.8L in '54 - a development of the J.5F Aiglet Trainer with centrally positioned flap lever and light alloy sheeting to the two inboard bays of the tailplane. Used as company demonstrator till '55. Sold to Australia '77 becoming VH-UYQ. Third rebuild completed the day before this shot was taken. (Thanks Ian O'Neill for some of the info.)
