Vera Bradley's book, "I Didn't Know That", refers on page 49 to some reminisces of Corporal Ken Hutchinson of RAAF North-Eastern Area, Advanced Operational Base (AOB) at Cairns airfield.

"A Boston A-20 Douglas belly landed, but he had no problems and we jacked him up and in no time he was away again."
