On an unknown date, wreckage of a USAAF P-39 Airacobra, was located 3 miles south of Usher Point.

It is not clear whether this could be one of the many Airacobras which forced landed on either 26 April 1942 (9 lost) or 1 May 1942 (six lost).  The "Aircraft Crash Sites - Australia" list suggest that it may be possibly linked to the crash of a P-39 on 25 April 1942.
