That BD5 is in the Royal Australian Airforce Association, Aviation Heritage Museum in Bull Creek Road, Bull Creek, Perth, Western Australia. It is a static display aircraft only will the flaps, aelerons, tail, elevators and undercarriage built as fixed. It has no engine. Its instruments and controls do not work. The only working parts are lights which flash. It was built as a memorial to Daniel Flouresse, who was a RAAFA youth group member who died as a teenager. His name is on the fusilage as the pilot. He wanted to be a RAAF pilot. His parents donated the funds for its construction. It was built by museum volunteers, Richard Hines and Alan Pye.
