FORCED LANDING OF A NORSEMAN
IN THE BURDEKIN RIVER, NORTH QLD
ON 20 DECEMBER 1944
The Operations Record Book for 3 Fighter Sector Headquarters (3 FSHQ) in Townsville shows the following entry for forced landing of Norseman A71-3 (#43-5190, c/n 181) on 20 December 1944:-
"A.O.R. advised Norseman A71-3 had forced landed in the Burdekin River, all on board were safe."
I'd like to thank Gordon Birkett for his assistance with this web page.
Can anyone help me with more information on this crash?
