WB518 stored in Griffith in a trucking yard ahead of being mounted on a pole in the main street. It was taken down from the pole in 1991 and forward fuselage and centre section used to repair VH-HMW/WD828 which had crashed. The damaged parts from -HMW were patched and fitted to the rest of WB518, which was then returned to the pole. Repairs on -HMW were done in the US and it became N518WB. The owner considers the aircraft to be WB518, not WD828.

This photo in the Netherlands national archives seems to have been commissioned by the Dutch navy for some reason, but appears to have been taken in Britain. VT413 was brand new at the given date and the groundcrew are in civilian clothes. It ended as a Firefly U9 target drone in Malta and was shot down by a Supermarine Scimitar in 1961.

This is one of those tricky ones! The original WB518 was built for the RAN and delivered in 1950. In 1965 it was delivered to Bankstown for disposal and eventually bought by the town of Griffith, NSW, as a war memorial and mounted on a pole in the centre of town. After VH-HMW/WD828 crashed in 1987, WB518 was removed from its pole and the forward fuselage and centre-section was used to rebuild WD828. The corresponding bits from WD828 were used to reconstruct WB518, and it was re-mounted on its pole.

This is one of those tricky ones! The original WB518 was built for the RAN and delivered in 1950. In 1965 it was delivered to Bankstown for disposal and eventually bought by the town of Griffith, NSW, as a war memorial and mounted on a pole in the centre of town. After VH-HMW/WD828 crashed in 1987, WB518 was removed from its pole and the forward fuselage and centre-section was used to rebuild WD828. The corresponding bits from WD828 were used to reconstruct WB518, and it was re-mounted on its pole.
