8 March 19454
One of our Mariners flew over to the Gulf today (from Cairns) to rescue the crew and passengers of a Douglas Dakota which had belly-landed on a beach.
Norm Weeding advised that #42-100625 c/n 19088 crashed at an unknown location on 6 March 1945. This may be the above crash perhaps.
I'd like to thank Norman Weeding for his assistance with this home page.
Can anyone help me with more information on this crash?
