Photo Comment

A9-759 was later converted to an AP-3C, with an enhanced electronic suite and radar. The "759" in the serial is a reference to US Navy serial 160759. It is the way the US Government processes foreign military sales but A9-759 was delivered new from the Lockheed factory to the RAAF in December 1978.
