The only Mk VII preserved in Australia, at the Aviation Heritage Museum, Bull Creek. This aircraft was formerly with the French Navy, serialled WU-16, and was donated to Australia in 1962. It was stored in the open near the domestic terminal at Perth Airport, until 1979 when it was moved to a purpose-built building at Bull Creek. It is painted to represent JO-D of 463 Squadron, RAAF, which was formed and based in the UK. The real JO-D completed 93 raids. (Canon EOS-300D)
