The Australian navy's second Dakota, ex RAAF and yet to receive its navy serial N2-23. VJ-ORB is a radio call sign. At the time military aircraft in Australia used civil call signs, the VJ prefix being navy and VM- the RAAF. They also had dedicated blocks of registrations and there was no VH-ORB until the military ceased using the system. Photo from: Civil Aviation Historical Society, Melbourne, Australia
