Since I was 10 years old I ventured into the TAA Hangar at Brisbane Eagle Farm Airport to look at the aircraft in this historic hangar. In 1987 I had the opportunity to photograph, crawl inside and drool over this wonderful aeroplane for what was to be the last time. I miss those days as I grow old.

Qantas bought VH-EDC in 1961 from the Department of Civil Aviation, which had operated it as VH-CAR. Qantas was used it for crew training. -EDC was disposed of 1971 and passed through the hands of a string of operators which used it for cargo and passenger charter. It was on a passenger charter on April 14, 1994, when it ditched into Botany Bay immediately after take-off. All on board escaped before -EDC sunk in shallow water. It was deemed not worth repairing.
