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 A81-3, VH-SJQ was registered in March 1970. After Jetair failed, it was sold to Air Express which operated it across Bass Strait from Melbourne to Tasmania. On May 10, 1975 -SJQ suffered an engine failed and was unable to maintain altitude. It ditched short of the Victorian coast. Both pilots perished.
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.
