Remarkably, VH-PVR returned to the register 5½ years after it was smashed in a storm at Bankstown in January 1977. There must have been very little of the original aircraft remaining when it was finished. Nature was not yet finished with -PVR. It was again wrecked in a storm in December 2014, this time at Cowra, New South Wales.

Originally N8036U when delivered to United in 6.61 and sold to Air New Zealand becoming ZK-NZF in 11.70 and traded in during 3.76 as part payment for their DC-10s, hence the Douglas registration here. Was to have taken up 5B-CAC during the Cyprus lease but never did; to Evergreen 9.78 as N804EV and b/u up at Marana 1.84 with TT 60,186

As if unsure about whether to go ahead with the new Herald colour scheme, BAF very briefly operated 'ZG in this strange half-and-half combination. Crashed in Zaire on 11.9.84 as 9Q-CAH (registration then re-used on Viscount G-ARIR)
