Acquired by the Dutch Constellation Association. Aircraft ex Conifair (Canada) C-GKXR. Re-registered N749NL in October 2001. Flown to Amsterdam in September 2002. Now resides on static display at the Aviodrome, Lelystad, The Netherlands.
VH-EAA arrives at Sydney at the end of its delivery flight. Converted to an L-749A in 1952 and sold to BOAC in February 1955. QEA had been lined up to take Avro Tudor IIs alongside BOAC and South African Airways. The Avro's poor hot and high performance saw QEA (with relief) switch to the superior Constellation.

This Constellation was being used as Discothèque-Bar "Tango Charly" in Marquise in northern France. It was broken up between September 1982 and June 1983 (i.e. not in late 1984 or even 1994 as claimed by most internet sources). Several years earlier it had been preserved in the amusement park called "Bagatelle" near Berck-sur-Mer.
