A2-649 served as part of the United Nations Emergency Force II in Egypt. It would later return to Egypt for another peacekeeping tour of duty and also served with the peacekeeping force in Bougainville. On the later tour it was as an army helicopter, not RAAF. It is now displayed at the Museum of Army Aviation at Oakey, Queensland, painted bright red which was the livery it wore in Bougainville. Photographer's name not known.
