On 5 June 1942, P-40E Kittyhawk A29-115 of 77 Squadron RAAF, piloted by Flight Lieutenant G. R. Shave, sank in soft ground whilst taxying to the dispersal point, resulting in three bent blades on the airscrew and a small 1 1/2" long crack in the port lower part of the reduction gear.

 

Can anyone help me with more information on this crash?
