WIRRAWAY COLLIDED WITH A VULTEE
AT BREDDAN, QLD
ON 4 NOVEMBER 1944
|visits since 24 July 2000|
On 4 November 1944, an RAAF Wirraway collided with and damaged the tail unit of a Vultee Vengeance at Breddan airfield. The Wirraway continued on and crashed on the opposite side of the airfield. There were 5 men of 6 Central Recovery Depot RAAF working on the rear section of the Vultee Vengeance at the time. Two of them were killed as a result of this collision.
Can anyone help me with more information on this collision?
