VH-CMI was one of the first aircraft to be seen in the livery of Jetair. Soon it had built up a fleet of DC-3 and Bristol 170s. It even acquired two Viscounts. But as quickly as it appeared it was gone leaving a mountain of debt.

Ex RAAF, VH-SJG was among a collection of aircraft purchased by Jetair. Jetair never really got going before it failed. Most of its fleet was acquired by the government and exported as aid. But -SJG remained and flew on until 1978 carrying cargo over Bass Strait. It ran out of flying hours and was bought by aircraft collector Malcolm Long. In 1988 he donated it the RAAF Museum at Point Cook where it is displayed in its original markings as A81-1.
