                                   Delivered to Ansett-ANA at the end of 1969, VH-RMS had been re-liveried into Ansett  - Airlines
                                   of Australia by the time Greg Banfield saw it departing Mascot in May 1977 (above).   It was sold
                                   to Air Nauru in May 1980 as C2-RN7 and used on freight services.     It was leased by TAA as a
                                   freighter in 1984 and came back onto the Australian Civil Register as VH-TBS in May 1987.  In
                                   the 1990s and 2000s it operated under lease for many freight organizations and finally wound up
                                   being donated to the Australian Training College at Brisbane in 2004.
