There is a pic of a claimed 400 Spitfires at the old WW2 strip at Oakey in South Queensland. Said to have been melteddown and used in industry.
Also many Corsairs etc, maybe ex NZAF or ex USAAF.

There are a lot of pictures of RNZAF Mosquitos being cut up for firewood after the war, now we spend millions to remake them.
