WRECKAGE OF A P-39 AIRACOBRA
LOCATED 3 MILES SOUTH OF USHER POINT
|visits since 19 February 2003|
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.
