N1363R painted to resemble the Lockheed Altair VH-USB Lady Southern Cross in which famed pilot Charles Kingsford Smith vanished during a UK-Australian record attempt in 1935. It was for a miniseries called A Thousand Skies and during filming N1363R also carried the registration VH-USB. In 1990 it joined the Australian register as VH-USR.
