Fork tail and Hiway have obviously never spent the time to master or enjoy the eccentricities of the family of Austers. Takes a while but worth it. All have their own quirks of the Mark.
Press 'Like' for Austers !!

I see at the local field modern spamcans getting bent; wheel-barrowing, dropped in, or long floats with bounds ending in dinged props, flat tyres and bent nose legs.
They all have their requirements for piloting skills.! Just like Austers.

And on the short field note.. In the "Drover" POH the instruction was...
'Land as normal and carefully apply the brakes'
