Beaufort bomber

On 25 June 1942, Beaufort A9-36 (T9588) of 100 Squadron RAAF crashed at Mt. Mulligan, 35 miles to the NW of Mareeba in tropical north Queensland. The aircraft departed Mareeba at 2000hrs and completed its anti-submarine patrol before getting lost and force landing. Pilot F/O Cahir, P/O Smith, P/O Scwartz and Sgt Borserini escaped any injuries.

The damaged aircraft was recovered at a later date by a salvage team and loaded on the train out of Mt.Mulligan.
