BAe are planning a fly pass of 30 CT4s at Tamworth this morning from 11.00hrs to mark 27 years of operations at Tamworth. Should be quite at site.

I can still remember when a number of RAAF CT-4's were auctioned off at Bankstown airport.
This would have been 20 years ago at least, and I think they went for around $40,000 to $50,000 each.

Would have thought there be a lot more around by now as they had a Harvard flying chase, I presume for photos.

From AA

Parrot Party at Tamworth celebrates CT-4

For almost three decades, Australian Defence Force (ADF) student pilots have undertaken initial flight training on the CT-4 Airtrainer. That era is approaching an end.

To mark 27 years of operational service, 30 CT-4A and CT-4B training aircraft conducted a mass display over Tamworth in northern New South Wales on September 21. That may be a world record for a flypast of identical aircraft.

The much-loved aircraft are referred to locally as ‘parrots’ and by some Defence personnel as ‘plastic parrots’.

BAE Systems Australia, which operates Flight Training Tamworth, home to the ADF Basic Flying Training School, has provided initial training for more than 5,000 basic pilots and flight screening candidates since it began operations in 1993.
