On 20 April 1942, the port landing wheel of P-40E Kittyhawk A29-60 of 77 Squadron RAAF, piloted by Pilot Officer B. Wilson, folded back whilst landing at Pearce Airfield. The port flap was damaged, and the port wing tip was damaged extensively. The airscrew blades were bent.

 

Can anyone help me with more information on this crash?
