P-40 Kittyhawk

 

On 16 April 1942 P-40E Kittyhawk A29-33 (#41-5518) piloted by Sgt Andrews made a belly landing at Rockhampton during a ferry flight from Archerfield to Port Moresby. It was being delivered to 75 Squadron. It had been involved in an earlier forced landing at Laverton in Victoria on 20 March 1942 when piloted by F/O Grant. A broken control cable to the elevators had been the cause of that accident.

 

Can anyone help me with more information on this crash?
