A89-275 photographed off the north Queensland coast while being flown by Flg Off Ron Green and Flg Off A. Tremain. The print is dated February 1963 which, if accurate, demonstrates how quickly the original semi-gloss Seaplane Grey finish had deteriorated since the aircraft was delivered only one year earlier. A89-275 was repainted in the gloss light grey scheme in May 1965. Note also that kangaroo roundels were carried only on the fuselage. Picture: RAAF via Ron Green
