A MYSTERY UNSOLVED...
The Loss of Catalina A24-49
By Bob Alford and Tony Morgan
Towards the end of WWII, in 1944, a heavily loaded RAAF Catalina flying boat, A24-49, launched from northern Australia for a seemingly routine mission over enemy territory in the Dutch East Indies. The aircraft, with ten crew onboard, vanished without a trace.
For family members of those crewmen, this remains an enduring mystery. The book includes a thorough background on RAAF Catalina operations during WWII.
A tragic WWII mystery not to be forgotten. Heavily loaded with fuel and pre-primed mines, ten brave young men led by pilot, Warwick Rose were lost without a trace.
What happened to them over 70 years ago?
