The significance of "Crowley Airways" on the fin is not known but Crowley was a Papua New Guinea based operator. Blanning had operated VH-DSP for at least three years prior to the photo. The aircraft was still registered in 2017 but its true status is in doubt. It suffered major damage at Medlow Bath, New South Wales, on July 20, 2004 when it cartwheeled into a pile of felled timber stacked next to the runway. It ended on its back.
