After RAAF service, this fairly late-production Wirraway was bought back by CAC in March 1960 for possible conversion to a Ceres ag aircraft. This did not occur and in November 1963 the aircraft was sold for scrap. Rescued by Pearce Dunn, it was kept at his museum at Mildura between 1970 & 1982. Sold for restoration at Point Cook and then Caboolture, it made its first post-restoration flight at Caboolture on 8 July 1997. Still based at Caboolture but seen here at the Wide Bay International Airshow.
