In 1969 VW623 had been preserved by the Australian navy in basic markings. It was given the civil registration VH-NVS in 1999 in preparation for joining the Fleet Air Arm's historic flight. That flight has since been grounded and the Sea Fury is now a static display again.

N6-770 caught in the transition from its Royal Navy serial of XG770 to its Australian serial of N6-770. The Australian Navy Fleet Air Arm had since its inception kept the RN serials with which its largely British acquisitions were delivered. This was despite aircraft being allowed an "N" prefix. But the switch to US aircraft in the form of A-4 and S-2s led to a late adoption of Australia serials on the some of the surviving Sea Venoms and Sea Vampires. They were all gone by 1973. -770 was sold but never left Nowra, and is now displayed as XG766 at the Fleet Air Arm Museum.
