Built as OO-AXE, but not taken up. Regd 27 May 1948 as G-AJXZ to Auster Aircraft Ltd. After a few other owners it was cancelled on 8 Aug 1951 as sold in Australia. Regd VH-AFD on 5 Sep 1952 to Kingsford Smith Aviation Services. Gordon Simmonds bought the aircraft in 1973 and still owns the aircraft in 2010. Only 59 J-2s were built, due to import restrictions on the American Continental C75-12 engine. VH-AFD is one of the few surviving J-2s in original condition.
