VF-84 was disestablished 1 October 1995. When photographed, 159848 was parked on the VF-14 ramp. On December 16, 1997, it was transferred to the Tillamook Aviation Museum, Oregon and is displayed there in VF-14 markings.
This PBY-5A (BuAerNo.48334) had originally been intended as a spares source for ZK-PBY, but is now on display at Tauranga. The hull has been restored with bow and blister turrets put back in position and is finished as a San Diego-based USN Catalina.
