Crashed on descent to Port Hedland on December 31, 1968 after the starboard wing failed. It led to the grounding all Australian Viscounts. Viscount 810s were cleared to fly again but the remaining Viscount 700s were grounded permanently. RMQ had been the second Australian Viscount, delivered in October 1954 as VH-TVB for TAA. VH-TVA and VH-TVC were also lost in fatal accidents, TVA in a training accident before entering service and TVC broke up in a storm in November 1961 while departing Sydney for Canberra when on lease to Ansett-ANA.

VH-TVC seen from the balcony of the former control tower that had become the TAA terminal at Sydney. The building still exists but now largely hidden by countless expansions of the terminal over the past 60 years. Qantas is the current tenant. To orientate those familiar with the airport in the 21st century, the international terminal now occupies most of the background.

Photographed by TAA over Westernport Bay, probably in December 1954 ahead of VH-TVC's entry into service on the 23rd of that month. TAA's first Viscount, VH-TVA, had been the intended star of its promotional material (using photos from Vickers) but it was written off in a fatal training accident on October 31 before entering service. -TVC arrived in Melbourne about the time the 2nd aircraft, VH-TVB, operated the airline's first Viscount service after a period of intense crew training. -TVC was destroyed on November 30, 1961 when it broke up in a storm over Botany Bay. It was with Ansett-ANA at the time.
