In late June 1942, one of the two Tiger Moths of 34 Squadron RAAF, then based at Batchelor airfield in the Northern Territory, made an emergency landing 10 miles south of Katherine in the Northern Territory. The Tiger Moth was left in the bush for a few days and unfortunately it was destroyed in a bush fire on 1 July 1942.
