RAAF 100 Squadron – Point Cook, Victoria.

A68-170 a CA-18 Mk.23 Mustang was delivered No 1, Aircraft Depot at RAAF Laverton by Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation on 23rd February 1950.

After a short time of operational flying, the aircraft was transferred to No 7 Stores Depot in Toowoomba QLD.

Transferred from No 7 Stores Depot to the RAAF Museum for display in 1970, A68-170 was initially restored to operating condition in the early – 1970s, and was known by the name ‘Duffys Delight’, after the Senior Engineering Officer at No 1 Flying Training School at the time.

In 1989, an in-depth restoration of the aircraft commenced under the control of No 1 Flying Training School and RAAF Museum staff. After ten years of restoration, the aircraft finally returned to the air in February 1999, as A68-750.

The aircraft continues to fly with the RAAF 100 Sqn, based at Point Cook.

The image of A68-750 (A68-170) was taken by Duncan Fenn, showing the aircraft at Tyabb in Victoria.
