Built for the USN as a PBV-1A and transferred to the USAAF as an OA-10A. After World War II sold to Cathay Pacific as VR-HDH. Transferred to subsidiary Macau Air Transport. TAA bought it as a replacement for VH-WWC which had sunk. Undercarriage removed to increase payload. Withdrawn from use in January 1966. Patair bought -SBV for its engines. Plans to preserve the airframe in Papua New Guinea did not eventuate and it was shipped to the Museum of Transport & Technology in New Zealand. TAA photo.
