Ex RAAF, VH-AGU's first years on the register starting in 1959 were in the aerial survey role. It then became the test aircraft for the Interscan microwave landing system before being retired in 1979. Resurrected in the 1980s, it passed though the hands of a long list of small charter operators before find a new life as a warbird in USAF Vietnam War markings.
