A20-649 was retired from RAAF service in 1958 and sold to Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation for conversion to a Ceres cropduster. This did not happen and it went to the RAAF Museum, although not owned by it. -649 became the basis of a warbird project (VH-WIR was reserved). The project was not completed and it was sold to the Fantasy of Flight Museum in Polk City, Florida where it was damaged in a hurricane. Subsequently, another Wirrway became VH-WIR (c/n CA16-1104). Photographer not known.
