About to land after dropping the Red Berets parachute team at the Wings Over the Illawarra airshow. This Iroquois was delivered to the RAN in 1965 and served with 723 Squadron. It crashed at HMAS Albatross/Nowra and was burned out on 29 March 1971, but was subsequently re-built. It was withdrawn from service use on 31 May 1989 and allocated to the RAN Fleet Air Arm Historic Flight and civil-registered as VH-NVV on 8 October 1991, still based at Nowra.
