Why this aircraft was re-painted in the all blue livery is a mystery to me, but at lease it's still in a complete state prior to becoming a airframe for use by trainee engineers.

Mangalore, remote from residential areas, served as a training airport for Ansett and TAA in the age of propliners and a place to divert when Melbourne-Essendon was closed. It later became the venue for Australia's Oshkosh, an annual Easter gathering of warbirds, sports and vintage aircraft. That has long gone and today YMNG is best known for its helicopter operations and flight training
