This is the centrepiece of the excellent Solent Sky Museum. The building is crammed with exhibits making this impossible to photograph in its entirety. I had last seen it as N158C in Puerto Rico in 1979

VH-BRC made three trips to Lake Eucumbene on charter to the Aviation Historical Society of Australia, this being the last. The lake was one of only three places within a convenient distance from Ansett's Sydney flying boat base suitable for the charter flights.
