CRASH OF A BRISTOL BEAUFORT
AT AN UNKNOWN LOCATION IN VICTORIA
ON 7 AUGUST 1942
RAAF Mark V Bristol Beaufort, A9-35 (RAF Serial No. T9587), made a forced landing at an unknown location in Victoria on 7 August 1942 after a fuel tank changeover was not carried out. The pilot was Sergeant P. Harrison.
This aircraft was originally delivered to the RAAF in April 1942. It was "not taken up". It was eventually authorised for write off in May 1946, and was struck off charge in August 1949.
John Keane advised me that A9-35 was ex 3 AD and was converted to components on 13 May 1946.
I'd like to thank Rick Hanning and Johne Keane for their assistance with the above information.
Can anyone help me with more information?
