CRASH OF A B-25D MITCHELL
AT TOWNSVILLE, QLD
ON 2 NOVEMBER 1942
USAAC B-25D Mitchell bomber, #41-29702 "Satan's Pet", of the 71st Bomb Squadron of the 38th Bombardment Group crashed at Townsville, QLD on 2 November 1942 during a training flight.
I now have access to a record of the burials of US Servicemen at the Townsville US Cemetery. The following US Servicemen of the 71st Bomb Squadron of the 38th Bomb Group were buried in the Townsville US Cemetery on 11 November 1942 after being killed in a "Plane Crash". Were they involved in the crash of the above B-25D Mitchell on 2 November 1942?
