The Hawkeye is an ultralight aircraft designed and built by its owner as a one-off aircraft. It was designed as a scale replica of the Piper L-4 observation aircraft and when completed was painted in an overall green colour scheme and markings of a US Army Air Force aircraft in World War II. It was initially powered by a converted four-cylinder Volkswagen engine but this was later replaced by a converted Continental GPU unit. It is known it was flown in the Mittagong, NSW area in 1995.
Designer and builder was Gavin John Moore and it was originally registered with the AUF as 10-1252 (c/n 1) in August 1990. It was later modified and fitted with a Lycoming O-235 engine but the were not compleed at that time. He then built a Wag-a-Bond and stopped work on the Hawkeye until the Wag-a-Bond was completed.
