A1-25 is towed ashore after ditching in Sydney Harbour, presumably due to engine failure. It was based at nearby RAAF Richmond. The water-logged aircraft was "converted to components" soon after. A1-25 had been part of the Imperial Gift, a collection of over 100 aircraft from the RAF to help form the RAAF. Canada, India, New Zealand and South Africa also received Imperial Gifts.
