Peter,

#40-1405 in the 408th records is listed as returning to Port Moresby from a mission at 1140L on the 13th and "Returned to base.....with slight damage to nose" ny 0925L on the 14th. The next flight to Port Moresby was not until 23 May, on which day they departed from Garbutt.

Keep 'em Flying!
