No. 3 Wireless Airgunners School started to disband at Maryborough, QLD in September 1944.  On 25 September 1944, 35 Wacketts departed for Ballaratt, via Narromine, NSW. Unfortunately only 34 arrived, as one made a forced landing near Oakey, QLD, due to excessive oil consumption, and was severely damaged.
