Auster / Taylorcraft Aeroplanes Mk.III

Auster Beagle built over 1600 Mark (Mk) I-V's for the British Army, which used all but the Mk II in their Air Observation Post (AOP) squadrons. The Auster's main roles were artillery spotting, supply drops, liaison, casualty evacuation and photographic reconnaissance, for which it was well-suited; its short take-off and landing (STOL) abilities enabled it to operate from small landing fields.
470 Mk.IIIs were built.

Engine: 130-hp/97-kW de Havilland Gipsy Major I
