VH-HMW was badly damaged in a forced landing at Camden, New South Wales, on December 5, 1987. Parts of it and Firefly WB518 were shipped to the US where they were restored as N518WB. The remaining parts of VH-HMW and WB518 were patched up and placed on the pole at Griffith, New South Wales, where WB518 had perched for 20 years.

WD828 taxies out for what had been expected to be its last flight, from storage at Bankstown airport to the Moorabbin airport aviation museum. But six years later the museum sold it to Mike Wansey, a warbird enthusiast who undertook an 11-year restoration back to airworthy as VH-HMW. Built as an AS6, WD828 had been converted to a TT6. When it returned to the air in 1984 it was again an AS6.
