Despite being registered VH-TMQ for several months before the photo, this C-47 was delivered to Essendon in its full RAAF markings. Stripped back to bare metal but then abandoned. Finally restored in the late 1990s and flown again in 2000. Now used for nostalgia flights.
VH-EDC where it was stored after it ditched in Botany Bay when it suffered engine problems on take-off from Sydney airport (YSSY) on April 24, 1994. Uneconomical to repair but lingered on the register for a further 12 years.
