CRASH OF A P-40 KITTYHAWK,
AT MILDURA AIRFIELD, VIC
ON 7 AUGUST 1945
F/Sgt Malcolm John Russell (442507), aged 22 years, of No. 2 Operational Training Unit (2 OTU) Mildura, crashed P-40 Kittyhawk, A29-130, during a night-time take-off from the Mildura airfield on 7 August 1945.
Apparently it was reported that F/Sgt Russell had said to his ground crew just before he took off "This is the last time you will see me."
I'd like to thank Gordon Clarke for his assistance with this home page.
Can anyone help me with more information?
