Problem Solved
It took 3 years to find the answer

I started these home page on 3 May 1998 in the hope of finding out the details of a P-38 Lightning crash that I was told about by one of my mates in the late 1950's or early 1960's. At the time, I found it hard to believe that a P-38 Lightning would have crash landed on the salt pan in Townsville. This saltpan had been my childhood play ground. I was certainly not aware that Townsville was so involved in wartime activities.
