The photo was taken at RAAF East Sale in late 1961 or early 1962. It had a number of deployments in the early 1960s to RAAF East Sale with other B-57Bs as part of the USAF Crowflight deployments. Early 1962 it was back at East Sale in the same role of medium-level air sampling the filters were located in the special wingtip pods. Later in 1962, the USAF moved the Crowflight deployments to RAAF Laverton with Laverton hosting U-2s. The B-57Bs were stationed at the Avalon airfield. This aircraft sadly crashed after take-off from Laverton with the loss of both the crew on the 1962-09-17.
