Photo Comment

XA101 seen here in the graveyard at Bankstown dismantled for transportation. It was sold for $200 to the Camden Museum Aviation Museum. The museum still owns it but the collection is no longer open to the public. In the photo XA101 has been stripped of its Australian navy markings, exposing an earlier code. At the time of retirement in 1968, XA101 was NW-806. It was 873 when it arrived in Australia in 1959, transferred from the Royal Navy which acquired it in 1953.
