VH AMK was the very first aircraft I actually took control of and flew. I am now 73 an when I was about 12, I lived at Caringbah in NSW. Whenever I managed to save £4.8 (4 pounds 8 shillings) from my paper run, I caught a train to Bankstown station, usually on a Sunday. I would then walk from there to Bankstown aerodrome to save the 3 pence bus fare.
I would wander around and in and out of the hangars (kids could do that in those days) and end up at Kingsford Smith Flying School where I paid my £4.7.6 for an hour flying in an Auster. An instructor who I think was Keith Robey would then install the control stick in the rear seat of Auster, VH AMK. We would take off and immediately the instructor would let me take control. Many years I obtained my pilots licence but never fotgot the thrill of flying VH AMK.
