10 Worst Aircraft Crashes in Australia

 

My first visit
to a WW2 Crash Site

 

NOTE - The United States Army Air Corps (USAAC) was retitled as the United States Army Air Force (USAAF) on 20 June 1941.

Did you know that there were at least 325 military aircraft crashes or
mishaps in New South Wales during the World War 2 years?

"You won't have any trouble finding your way to Darwin. Just follow the trail of crashed Kittyhawks, you can't go wrong."

The words of the Corporal in charge of the refuelling crew at Cloncurry in November 1942.

There are many USAAF Kittyhawk crashes not listed below. For example, the 49th Pursuit Group lost 30 Kittyhawks in NSW within two weeks of receiving their aircraft.

Of the 330 Kittyhawks delivered to the USAAF by March 1942, 140 had been wrecked in training accidents in Australia.
