Abandoned at Allahabad, Pakistan, on December 26, 1946 while being ferried to the UK. Crew feared imminent failure of the tail. Between the time of the photo and being abandoned, VH-USW had served with the RAAF as an ambulance. It suffered a couple of significant accidents with Holyman's before the war. Postwar Qantas rejected -USW due to its poor condition and it went to MMA in Western Australia.

Prototype Wackett when fitted with a DH Gipsy Major engine. Performance poor so refitted with a Gipsy Six. Heavier engine improved performance but at expense of a higher stalling speed and longer take-off run. Warner Scarab radial selected for production model (CA-6). The delays meant the RAAF adopted the DH82 Tiger Moth as its main trainer. 200 CA-6s were delivered to the RAAF compared with 1085 DH82.
