VH-AAX was an unique Australian conversion of the Beaver called the Wallaroo. It used a Garrett TPE331 engine instead of the Pratt and Whitney PT6A used in production Turbo Beavers. The conversion was carried out at Bankstown in 1969 using an aircraft drawn from the Aerial Agriculture cropduster fleet. It was converted back into a regular Beaver in 1973 and returned to agricultural flying. In 1986 it converted again to Wallaroo configuration and was being used for skydiving in 2017.
Taken from cockpit of another Caribou soon after takeoff from Richmond (YSRI). The plan was to rendezvous with a formation of all 24 RAAF C-130 Hercules in service at the time. In a rare event, all would be at Richmond that day. The scheme was thwarted when one was called away for a sea search. The remaining 23 performed a flyover of Sydney Harbour with the two Caribous as photo platforms
Survey aircraft from 1947, initially as VH-BHE. Operated by Airlines of New South Wales for the NSW Department of Lands from 1960 to 1965. Did not fly again until 1969 when it was bought and rebuilt by Jetair.
