Left side was painted with Australian National Airways titles and fake registration VH-ANA at Essendon in late 1985 for use in the movie "A Far Country". It is actually ex RAAF A65-102. In 1990 it was registered N65388 and cancelled in 1994. It was next registered VH-SPY in 1995 and stored at Cairns, QLD. Cancelled in 1999 when it became N65388 again, but never delivered due to corrosion. Remained at Cairns until Feb 2016, when it was trucked away. Last sighted in dismantled state at Innisfail Aerodrome, QLD in Oct 2019.

A65-102 was the largest entrant in the Benson and Hedges trans-Australian air race. The RAAF disposed off it in 1980. It was ferried around the country to different locations but it would be 1990 before it was formally registered, as N65388. In 1995 it became VH-SPY and then returned to its US identity in 1999. Severe corrosion was found during an inspection at Cairns in 2001, and it was permanently grounded.
