VH-TMK was lost on February 28, 1998 when its wing failed near Wellard, Western Australia, during aerobatics.The pedigree of -TMK is a mystery. Msn T250 was allocated to a rebuild of msn 83250. However 83250 is VH-CXV. A possibility is the plate stamped T250 was among the components used in building -TMK (it was first registered in August 1980) while VH-CXV still has the original British DH plate with the serial 83250.

VH-MVR was the prototype of a four-seat aircraft to complement the two-seat Victa Airtourer trainer. The failure of Victa to win tariff protection saw it exit the aircraft industry but the Aircruiser was completed, test flown (first flight July 18, 1966) and certified. -MVR was registered in September 1967. The Aircruiser was among the assets sold by Victa to AESL in New Zealand and became the basis is the CT/4 Airtrainer. After 10 years in New Zealand as ZK-DAH, the sole Aircruiser returned to Australia and took up its former identity in 1979.

A65-71 was delivered to the RAAF in 1945. It remained in operational service until 1980 when it was earmarked for the Australian War Memorial. The RAAF repainted it in its original wartime markings and over the next 17 years it made many air show appearances. A65-71 was flown to Canberra in August 1997 and placed in the museum's Treloar storage facility. The apparent civil registration is a wartime call sign only. A65-71 was never civil registered nor civil operated in its 42-year flying career.

In January 1981 N68756 was painted in the RAAF markings seen here and, sponsored by Newcastle TV station NBN and the RSL Building Society, was brought to Australia for a tour coinciding with the RAAF's 60th anniversary. The aircraft returned to the US a few months later and was withdrawn from use in 1986. It became derelict at various locations in Texas, before being used as a spares source by HARS circa 2008 and the Pima Air Museum, AZ in 2009. In September 2017 it was sold to MotoArt Studios and broken up, to be converted into luxury furniture.
