This lovely Cherokee E was allocated N3429R but it's not known whether it was actually worn. In any case it was registered, new, in Australia on 29 July 1970.

Built in 1972 and initially allocated N50462 but in all probability never wore it as it was registered in Australia on 2 April 1973. Commando Skydivers was one of the first civil parachuting organisations in Australia, being formed in 1961. For many years it operated out of Pakenham before that DZ was closed and they moved to Tooradin.

This Canberra was built by English Electric and diverted to the RAAF from RAF an contract (serial WD939). Delivered to RAAF on 01 August 1951, it was the first Canberra to arrive in Australia (and in fact the first jet to fly UK to Australia), setting an unofficial speed record in the process. The aircraft spent most of its life with 82 Wing and the bomber OCU before being retired in 1973. It was put on display at the Central Ammunition Store at Kingswood, NSW until 2004. Acquired by the Vietnam Veterans Museum, it was initially kept dismantled in outside storage.
