RE­MEM­BER WHEN

Central and North Burnett Times - - OVER 50S -

WAR HIS­TORY: In 1945 a United States B-24 Lib­er­a­tor Bomber, Beau­ti­ful Betsy, a Veteran of 25 long range war mis­sions, was re­ported miss­ing on a flight from Dar­win to Bris­bane. An in­ten­sive war time search was un­suc­cess­ful and the dis­ap­pear­ance was a mys­tery un­til a park ranger in 1994 dis­cov­ered wreck­age in Kroom­bit Tops Na­tional Park above the head­wa­ters of the Bur­nett River. The air-crash site is now clas­si­fied as a war grave.
