Quantas B.707-338C, VH-EBS "Kalgoorlie"
After its service with Quantas in March 1973, it was registered 9M-ASO with Malaysian Airlines and finally with Jamahiriya Air Transport as 5A-DJO.
Regrettably it was written off on 14th March 1983 after an engine failure some 30km north of Sebha, Libya with the loss of all five crew. The aircraft crashed and burst into flames.
