Looking at your web site on the plane landing accident on Corrunna Downs station , the location on the web page is wrong ,the proper location of this station is 31 kms south of Marble Bar, in Western Australia not in the Northern Territory as stated on this page, as I worked on Corrunna Downs for 7 years, and visited the landing strip many times looking for mortor cases made of brass, I thought I would let you know this is the correct location, thanking you very much

Mr Robert Suttcliffe

 

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT
I would like to thank Phil Herdman of the Arnhem Land Historical Society for details on the above incident.
