JAPANESE BOMBING RAID
ON SATTLER AIRFIELD
2 APRIL 1942
On 2 April 1942 a Japanese reconnaissance aircraft reported the construction of a new airfield 20 miles south of Darwin beside the Daly Waters to Darwin track. Later that same day the new Sattler RAAF airfield was bombed by the Japanese. There was minimal damage. There were no Allied planes at the base as it was still under construction.
