10 FEBRUARY 1943
CRASH OF A C-47 DAKOTA
IN THE IRON RANGE AREA

 

Peter Nielsen's book "Diary of WWII - North Queensland" describes a USAAF Douglas C-47 Dakota which failed to arrive at Iron Range on a flight from New Guinea on 10 February 1943.

The list of "Aircraft Crash Sites - Australia" refers to a USAAF C-47 Dakota which failed to arrive at Iron Range after departing Fenton in Northern Territory on 10 Feb 1943.

Are they both the same incident? I've assumed that they are. But which one is correct? Or are they both correct?
