1944 Auster 5 For Sale

No.661 Squadron was an Air Observation Post squadron that served in north-western Europe from August 1944 until the end of the Second World War. Air Observation Post squadrons were created to provide airborne observers for the artillery (see No.651 Squadron for more details). Most of their aircrews came from the army, and they used light aircraft (most Austers) which flew above their own guns using the altitude to spot targets over the horizon. The squadron was formed at Old Sarum on 31 August 1943. It spent the next year in the UK, and had to wait for two months after D-Day before finally moving to Normandy on 7 August 1944. After that the squadron supported the Allied armies as they advanced across France and into the Low Countries and Germany. The squadron remained in Europe until being disbanded on 31 October
