| Former pilot Charles Davidson with A-20G "Hell'N Pelican II" 42-86786
Reunited with his aircraft after more than half a century. The photo
was taken at Amberley in
Australia. The aircraft was salvaged by the RAAF in 1984 after Michael
Claringbould found it in 1976, but it was not restored until 1997. The aircraft was forced-landed by Charles Davidson, on April
16, 1944 because of a large weather build up, and was recovered by the RAAF in 1984
for restoration. If you think Charles looks happy, you are correct.
