152333 VH-NVX RAN Historic Flight, New South Wales, Australia S-2G Information obtained from from Andrew Cripps is the the Royal Australian Navy Historic Flight has now finished a complete airframe and engine restoration on 152333 and is planning to start operating it again at airshows and aviation events.  The first flying appearance for 152333 since 1999 is scheduled to be at the Wings over Illawarra" Airshow May 5th in New South Wales, Australia.

This is owned and operated by the Royal Australian Navy as a private aircraft and flown at air shows.  However, there is no current photo evidence of it flying beyond 1997.  This is a great treasure.  Marked as 844.  In October of 2008 at the
HMAS Albatross 60th Anniversary Air Show the Tracker did taxi runs in anticipation of a return to flight in the near future.
