CRASH OF A KITTYHAWK
AT MILDURA, VIC
ON 24 JANUARY 1943
On 24 January 1943, RAAF Kittyhawk A29-82, of No. 2 Operational Training Unit (2 OTU) based at Mildura, VIC, made a forced landing at Mildura airfield. The pilot 20 year old Sergeant G.F. Raffen (416364) was killed in this accident.
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 on this crash?
