A79-642 was displayed outside the Hawker de Havilland factory where it had been built. Its condition deteriorated and it was replaced by another Vampire. From then on -642 was passed around the company before being sold to the Camden Museum of Aviation. In 2000 it was acquired by the Temora Aviation Museum as spares for the airworthy A79-617 (VH-VAM).
