by Lawrence Hickey.
B-25-D-5 (D-1) Mitchell bomber, #41-30045, nicknamed "The Round Robin", of the 498th Squadron of the 345th Bomb Group, blew a tyre on take-off at Woodstock airfield, in north Queensland.
Mr. Gerber was piloting the Mitchell bomber when it crashed off the side of the runway. The entire crew were injured and the aircraft was destroyed.
Can anyone help me with more information?
