    Beck Museum Mareeba Australia.

    This museum closed in 2017 after the death of its founder Syd Beck in 2005, and its artefacts including a number of airframes sold. What happened to them, in particular the Piaggio P.136 VH-BJP which was salvaged by Syd after being damaged on landing and sinking in 1974. It was still in external store at the museum in 2003.

    Don't know what became of them, but when I visited in Summer 2005 the aircraft was still there, as were the famous P-39, a Sundowner fuselage, Vampire, Sea Venom nose, Sycamore, Dakota, Wackett fuselage frame, Tiger Moth fuselage and a complete Sea Venom. Plus lots of bits and pieces. Great place!

      The Wackett and a few other aircraft have since moved on.
