An interesting Auster aircraft project has been spotted for sale. The listing states (in part):
This comprises of a fuselage, two wings, and many parts (tail section, undercarriage legs, doors, seats, floorboards, ailerons, many wooden parts, main struts, and much more not shown in the photos. Not included: instruments, flaps, or secondary struts. The fuselage is believed to have never actually flown as the cockpit floorboard fittings have never been drilled through. It is therefore technically ‘new old stock’. As such the project is registered with the LAA as a ‘replica’ Beagle Terrier 3 currently (to be fitted with a Lycoming O320 engine). I’m sure if you wanted to re-build as a different Auster type, it should be easy to change with the LAA. No engine included!… Lot’s of paperwork, plans and drawings will be included in the sale.
The project is located in Suffolk, United Kingdom and is currently available for bidding. Click here to check out the listing.
