Marshall MA-4

Marshall MA-4 - это самолет Auster T.Mk 7 с крылом увеличенного размаха и перфорацией для отвода пограничного слоя воздуха. Доработку машины выполнила компания "Marshalls" из Кембриджа.
  Крыло, элероны и закрылки самолета были снабжены всасывающими насосами, приводимыми в действие от вспомогательной газовой турбины, установленной под углом 45° в центральной части фюзеляжа. Насосы отводили пограничный слой воздуха с аэродинамических поверхностей. В 1966 году при выполнении испытательного пролета MA-4 разбился, погиб летчик-испытатель Брайан Уэсс.

Auster AOP series (UK)
  AOP.6 was developed from the Mk 5 and powered by a 108 kW (115 hp) Gipsy Major 7 engine. Modified fuselage and increased all-up weight. All-metal auxiliary aerofoil flaps below and behind trailing edge, and wings strengthened to take two 52.25 litre (11.5 Imp gallon) fuel tanks. Pilot and observer seated in tandem. Lengthened landing-gear struts allowed larger airscrew. Production completed in 1949. T.7 was a two-seat trainer which could be quickly converted to full AOP standard. Side-by-side seating with dual controls. Third seat could be fitted. AOP.9 had a 134 kW (180 hp) Cirrus Bombardier 203 (military version of 702) engine.

Beagle A.61 Terrier (incl 6A Tugmaster) (UK)
  Produced by completely rebuilding and furnishing to new high standards ex-army Auster AOP.6 and T.7 monoplanes. The 6A Tugmaster and Terrier 1 were also rebuilt Auster Mk 6s, but to lower standards. First flight of a Terrier Series 2 was made on 25 April 1962. The type is a three-seat touring and training monoplane.
