Photo Comment

VH-DCE was registered in April 1969 and withdrawn from use in 1992. It was then used as a training aid at technical schools. In 2007 a section of the fuselage went to the Queensland Air Museum as a mount for a Wild RC9 aerial survey camera although the aircraft itself had never been used in that role. The rest of the airframe went to a scrap yard.
