VH-BXB crashed at Koyuga, Victoria on September 15, 1963. Remains taken to Ryan's Equipment farm machinery yard at Dookie where it was restored for static display. Wrecked in a wind storm and dumped. Collected by the Australian Aircraft Restoration Group and stored in Melbourne. Parts lost when the house where it was stored was sold with the aircraft still there.
Comets were the only jet airliners to provide scheduled international services into Essendon. After they were withdrawn in 1965, flying out of Melbourne to Europe meant a domestic flight to Sydney or another transit port. The opening of Tullamarine airport in 1970 ended this inconvenience.
