|Pilot Captain Harry O. Patterson
Crashed April 4, 1943
The navigator left the crash site, and proceeded north. He came to a Hospital, and gave the news that there had been a crash. A Local Australian bushman was called into to assist with the search. He questioned the navigator about what landmarks he had passed on his way to the Hospital. They got a couple Jeeps with the bushman on the hood and started looking. The bushman directed them to a point and said that they were where the plane should be. They fired a flare, and another was fired within 50 yards of them, found the wreckage. One crewmember had died, the rest were unhurt.
