Ex RAAF, VH-AGU's first years on the register starting in 1959 were in the aerial survey role. It then became the test aircraft for the Interscan microwave landing system before being retired in 1979. Resurrected in the 1980s, it passed though the hands of a long list of small charter operators before find a new life as a warbird in USAF Vietnam War markings.

VH-AGU seen during the time it was used to test the Interscan microwave landing system being developed jointly with the US. A light was fitted to the nose to help those on the ground track its approach path during testing at Melbourne-Tullamarine. Despite being adopted by ICAO as the world standard in 1978, Interscan came to halt 1994 when the US switched to a GPS based system. VH-AGU in the meantime had been sold in 1979 for charter work. Since 2013 it has been on the airshow circuit painted as a USAF AC-47 "Spooky" gunship.
