The RAAF's last four Beaufighters gathered at what is believed to be RAAF Richmond where 30 (Target Towing) Sqn was based. In early 1956 the aircraft were ferried to Tocumwal. Three were scrapped there but the second aircraft in this line-up, A8-328, was donated to the Lord Mayor's camp for children at Portsea, Victoria from where it was rescued in 1962 and preserved.
