On 4 July 1943, an unidentified aircraft from the 8th Bomb Squadron of the 3rd Bomb Group, based in Charters Towers, was lost in bad weather somewhere between Cairn, Australia and New Guinea. It apparently had a payload of 3,000 lbs and 19 men on board.

Three members of the crew were as follows:-

Captain Richard G. Ruby (#0-431527)
Captain Ralph C. Payne (#0-431501)
S/Sgt Robert W. Stockwell
