Located near the coast, on the salt plains of
Wartime airfield, disused since the war.
Pilot Izuka shot down July 20, 1944. Last Japanese
aircraft shot down over Australian mainland
C-53 Skytrooper Serial
Pilot Vandiver crashed February 26, 1942
North of the airfield there was/is another B-24 which
bellied in when it couldn't make the strip. This was rooted from
the salt and I did not go to it.
Do you have photos or additional information to add?
