N15-709 was sold on the civil market in 2001 and ferried to the UK as 3C-QQP. It was then bought by Horizon Airlines and ferried back to Australia. Plans to fit a large cargo came to an nought when Horizon Airlines failed in October 2003. N15-709 ended up at the Australian Aviation Museum, Bankstown Airport as a static display.

One of the Iraqi Furies recovered from storage in 1979. Confusingly for enthusiasts, it was painted to resemble Australian Navy Sea Fury WH589, which had been parked at Bankstown airport for many years as a potential target towing aircraft with Illawarra Aviation. That aircraft was sold in the US. Initially, VH-HFX carried the serial WE729 (a British Sea Fury that ended up in Cuba) but this was later changed to WH589. In 1991 -HFX was sold in the UK as G-BTTA, eventually making its way back to Australia as VH-ORN in 2010

The fencing around ZE700 was more a warning to curious airport workers to keep clear rather than an attempt at security. It was parked on a part of the Qantas Jet Base, which was inaccessible to the public.
