Lockheed Hudson A16-178 of 2 Squadron RAAF, piloted by Mr. O'Neil, hit a tree while landing at Drysdale in the Northern Territory on 14 April 1943.

This aircraft was involved in a later incident on 15 October 1943 when it did not return from a flight out of Millingimbi.

 

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT
I would like to thank Phil Herdman of the Arnhem Land Historical Society for details on the above incident.

 

Can anyone help me with more information?
