On 30 January 1970, the two ex-TAA Viscounts at Southend, VH-TVD & VH-TVF, were moved from the centre of the airfield to a site on the North side of the airfield (as depicted above), where they were completely stripped of all useful spares prior to scrapping. The latter task had commenced by 7 February 1970, both fuselages having been severed aft of the wing trailing edge. By 15 February the two aircraft had been reduced to a fast-diminishing heap of scrap, which had completely disappeared by 21 February 1970.

Why this aircraft was in New Zealand then is unrecorded, but TEAL - New Zealand's national airline - did later lease TAA DC-4s for services when Sandringham flying boats were grounded and for services from Christchurch. Ordered new by TAA and entered service on 4 November 1946. Leased to British Commonwealth Pacific Airlines from April 1948 to February 1949 and registered as VH-BPB. Returned to TAA and registration renewed as VH-TAB but name changed to "John Gilbert". Later converted to a freighter in 1959. Renamed "David Collins". Sold in 1970.
