10 Worst Aircraft Crashes in Australia

 

NOTE - The United States Army Air Corps (USAAC) was retitled as the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF) on 20 June 1941.

Did you know that there were at least 281 military aircraft crashes
or mishaps in the rest of Queensland outside of
the north Queensland area during World War 2?

"You won't have any trouble finding your way to Darwin. Just follow the trail of crashed Kittyhawks, you can't go wrong."

The words of the Corporal in charge of the refuelling crew at Cloncurry in November 1942.
