This aircraft sat on this elevated area for many years. During my youth I spent many hours happily sitting in the aircraft ( my friend's Dad worked in the Control Tower ) on weekends, in a time that was much more conducive to people crawling around aeroplanes.

Marked Australian Inland Charter and with a partial TAA livery. It has yet to be fitted with its enlarged "Viewmaster" windows that enhanced its role as an airborne tour bus.

Delivered to the USAAF in 1942 as 41-18663. It entered the Australian register in July 1944. It has been operated by ANA, on lease, and in 1946 became one of the first aircraft in the TAA fleet. It was sold to Bush Pilots in 1970 but was soon withdrawn from use at Archerfield due to corrosion. It was sold Chewing Gum Field Museum and transported to its Tallebudgera hangar in 1978. It was last reported circa 2006 in Swan Hill, Victoria, stored dismantled on a farm.
