Built as a demonstrator. In 1948 undertook an extensive tour of South America after which it was shipped back to the UK. It remained crated until shipped to Australia in 1959. Delivered to the RAAF as A99-001 but at the end of 1959 the RAAF returned the aircraft. It reverted to its UK registration but remained in Australia. Registration cancelled in August 1961 and the aircraft donated to the Sydney Technical College as an instructional airframe. In 1965 it was acquired by the RAAF Museum.
VH-BIL was registered in October 1962 but came to grief soon after. In August 1963 it was reregistered VH-BIE but it is not known if it flew in these markings or even wore them. In September 1965 it was reregistered again as VH-GGL, which may have marked completion of repairs.
VH-EDA in its initial livery with two red stripes on the tail. Later updated to a single stripe with the flag removed and the Qantas logo added. Later still received Qantas' 747 era red tail and ochre cheat line.
