CRASH OF A WIRRAWAY
INTO LAKE VICTORIA, NSW
ON 14 OCTOBER 1942
On 14 October 1942, RAAF Wirraway A20-499 from No. 2 Operational Training Unit (2 OTU) based at Mildura, Victoria, crashed into Lake Victoria in New South Wales. The pilot, 21 year old Flight Sergeant L.J. Wellington (407472), was killed in the crash.
I'd like to thank John Lever for his assistance with details of this crash. John Lever is the author of a number of books on RAAF Operational Training Units.
Can anyone help me with more information?
