Beginning overnight delivery operations in 1971 with 22 Falcon 20 biz-jets, Federal Express began a massive expansion when the airline industry was deregulated in 1977, starting with cargo operators. Upsizing to Boeing 727s began with used 100 series aircraft. This one was from Eastern Airlines in July 1980, former N8165G. Sold to UPS in January 1994, it was re-registered N946UP and re-engined with RR Tays. This was one of five 727s UPS used for passenger flights utilizing seats mounted on pallets. Those were flown between 1997 and 2001 with the aircraft returning to flying only freight.

VH-FNR started life as a 400 series but was converted to a 600 on the production line. It however remained a 400 on the register. Sister ship VH-FNQ was also registered as a 400 but after a stint in New Zealand, came back on the Australian register as a 600. In both instances it appears the original paperwork went through before the change of model.

VH-SJU arrived in Australia in 1969 as a standard Beech 55 Baron. When seen in 1981 it had President 600 written on the cowlings. The President 600 was a modification by Colemill in which the Continental O-470 engines and two-bladed props were replaced by Continental O-520 engines and three-bladed props, essentially making a C55 Baron. However, there has been no change of type for -SJU on the register, which in 2018 listed the engine type as O-470. It does have three bladed props.
