Ex G-ASCX, VH-CLV was delivered to Connellan Airways in 1970 and converted to Lycoming power. In 1974 it was chartered by Ansett Airlines of New South Wales as a potential replacement for the Short flying boats following the opening of an airport on Lord Howe Island. -CLV returned to Connellan but in 1981 it was back on the Sydney-Lord Howe route with Avdev Airlines, soon to be renamed Avdev Airlines Davey. It was sold to Airlines of Tasmania in 1984 and was still with it when ceased operations in 1997. -CLV passed to the Queen Victoria Museum, Launceston.
