JAPANESE RECCE FLIGHT OVER SWANBOURNE,
Rosemary Shepherd, an AWAS who was based at the searchlight Unit at Swanbourne in Western Australia, remembers that their unit spotted a Japanese reconnaissance aircraft in broad daylight in 1943. They then tracked its course by radar.
There were many other reported sightings of strange aircraft flying over Western Australia during World War II.
