Kittyhawk

On 13 November 1942, P-40E Kittyhawk, A29-59, of 77 Squadron RAAF made a wheels up landing on a dry grass mud plain and stopped on soft mud in a shallow tidal creek at the mouth of the Daly River in the Northern Territory. The airscrew unit failed at about 800ft during a training flight. The windscreen and canopy was subsequently covered in oil and grease, and the pilot Flying Officer Richard Paget Sudlow (406083) switched off the engine and made a forced landing.
