Built as G-ARBB. Served Mexicana as XA-NAT. Stored in a densely packed area of the airport. Withdrawn from use in Dec 1970 and sold to Westernair in Apr 1973. Registered as N777WA a year later, but this reg was never applied to the aircraft. It was ultimately dismantled at Mexico City in the 1980s and trucked to the Parque Hidalgo de Irapuato in Irapuato. This became the Parque Zoológico Irapuato in Apr 1993, and the aircraft was displayed there until it was eventually broken up in March 2015.

Ex Mexicana XA-NAT, in derelict condition. Was sold to Westernair of Albuquerque in Apr 1973 and registered as N777WA a year later, but this registration was never painted on the aircraft. It was ultimately dismantled at Mexico City in the 1980s and trucked to the Parque Hidalgo de Irapuato in Irapuato, which became the Parque Zoológico Irapuato in Apr 1993. The aircraft remained on display there until scrapped in March 2015.

Mexicana's XA-NAT was stored at MEX from Dec 1970 and became N777WA in May 1973, but this was never painted on the aircraft. Bought by Redmond Air in Nov 1979 (along with N888WA now preserved at Everett, and N999WA, scrapped at Chicago) with the intention of forming a club to fly gamblers to Las Vegas. This one remained derelict at the airport right through the 1980s (note the Dan-Air wing tank). It was moved to Irapuato Zoo where it clung onto life in an increasingly poor state until scrapped in March 2015. Sad to think of such a rare and iconic aircraft succumbing to the breakers so recently, some 55 years after first entering service.
