Qantas bought VH-EDC in 1961 from the Department of Civil Aviation, which had operated it as VH-CAR. Qantas was used it for crew training. -EDC was disposed of 1971 and passed through the hands of a string of operators which used it for cargo and passenger charter. It was on a passenger charter on April 14, 1994, when it ditched into Botany Bay immediately after take-off. All on board escaped before -EDC sunk in shallow water. It was deemed not worth repairing.
