This was the 495th Friendship, ordered originally for Libya. Registered to Fokker in 1980 as PH-EXM, then PH-FTX. Sold in the USA and re-registered N334MV, then N272SA in 1986. It was sold back to Fokker in 1987 and became PH-FTX again. It then went through several hands as CN-CDC, PH-FTX again, TR-LCQ, F-SEBJ, HB-ILJ and ZK-PAX. In 2018 it was acquired by HARS and flown from Auckland to Wollongong where it is currently engineless, becoming VH-EWH(6) on 18 January 2018. It is the fourth Fokker and second F.27 to wear this registration!

Sold to Motif Air, Melbourne, 12 Jul 70. Eventually became derelict at Bankstown.

Built new for the RAAF and delivered to 10 Squadron, Townsville, 24 May 1962. On 6 December 1977 it made the last RAAF Neptune flight, from Townsville to Amberley, for disposal. In June 1978 it was sold to the Chewing Gum Field Museum, Tallebudgera QLD, and trucked to the Museum. In 1989 it was dontated to the Australian Flying Museum and moved to Archerfield the following year. In 1992 the registration VH-NEP was reserved, but never taken up - confusingly not the currently-registered VH-NEP.
