The second in the series about Noel Kruse's 51 years in aviation, in this episode we hear about his joining the RAAF and re-learning to fly on the CAC Winjeel and the de Havilland Vampire, and his posting follwoing training to No. 81 Wing at RAAF Williamtown on fighters.
Those two episodes were fantastic. Noel had me laughing out loud about learning to fly with the RAAF and flying the Vampire alsogetting chased by an instructor, him on foot and the instructor in a Winjeel!! He also raises some good points about instructing and the differences between military and civilian. Well worth a listen.
The Auster should be recognised for what it is: a gentleman's aerial touring carriage and a nice aeroplane.
