Painted as a memorial to airline pioneer Arthur Butler. VH-NJI was withdrawn from use in 1995. Registration cancelled in 2004. Displayed at the Fleet Air Arm museum at Nowra before being passed to HARS at Parkes. The original VH-AHB was a fixed-gear, Gipsy Queen-powered Heron 1B.
DQ-FDY was part of a collection of derelict aircraft stored in the museum compound. The museum has since closed and the collection dispersed. The Heron is with the Central Australian Aviation Museum at Alice Springs in the livery it wore as VH-CLW with Alice Springs-based Connair.
