Tiger Moth

 

Tiger Moth A17-346 of 2 Elementary Flying Training School 2 EFTS at Archerfield, crashed at  Archerfield Airfield, Brisbane at 0850 hours E.A.S.T. on 18 February 1942. The pilot held off too high and stalled in whilst landing. The probable cause was listed as "poor technique due to inexperience". The undercarriage was torn off, the fuselage floor was fractured, and the sides buckled. The engine cowling was also damaged and the airscrew was fractured. The pilot LAC James Linnigan Fisher (414547) was uninjured.

 

Can anyone help me with more information on this crash?
