AP-3C VH-ORI (A9-753) at HARS Shellharbour Airport on 23 November 2022. The aircraft carries the crests and mottos of all RAAF units that operated the Orion. These markings were applied to the aeroplane before it was handed over to HARS in November 2017. The Dayglo sleeves on the nose landing gear doors show 753 to port and ORI to starboard. Both sleeves have the additional marking "Owned Operated and Maintained by HARS". The triangle labelled S-738 on the NLG door is a NATO symbol denoting the presence of isopropyl alcohol mixed with water in the windshield washer system which is located in the wheel well.
