CRASH OF A USAAF GLIDER
NEAR MOUNT PLEASANT
ABT 5 MILES NW OF DAYBORO
IN SOUTH EAST QLD
ON AN UNKNOWN DATE DURING WWII

 

My late friend Ken Gold told me about two forced landings that he knew took place during WWII. One was a "forced landing" of an L-4 Cub just north of his parents' home near Samsonvale and the other was the forced landing of a USAAF Glider north east of his wife's parents' Farm House near Mount Pleasant.
