Only weeks before the end of World War 2 a Bomber on a training exercise became lost at night in North Eastern Victoria with tragic consequences.

How did this experienced crew manage to be 100 miles off-course?

Why did it take so long to find the wreck?

Russell Kelly's account of events that took place in 1945 traces the last flight of Beaufort Bomber A9-228, the botched RAAF aerial search and the ultimate discovery by relatives of the wreck in rugged mountain country.
