6 APRIL 1942
CRASH OF A B-25 MITCHELL
AT CHARTERS TOWERS
NOTE:- Edward Rogers advised the following on 27 November 2010:-
"The 3rd BG did not crash any of their B-25s on 6 April 1942 - the date of their first combat mission."
"B-25C #41-12514 was one of two bombers that were damaged on their first landing at Charters Towers on 30 March 1942."
So perhaps this accident may have occurred on 30 March 1942.
