Crashed attempting an emergency landing at Winton, Queensland, on September 22, 1966. An engine fire had spread to the wing, which failed 25km from the airport. The fire started in a faulty cabin pressurisation blower and the inquiry found there had been others. Those fires had not been reported to the blower manufacturer or Viscount operators.

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
