WWII: AirCrash Detectives (2014): S01E03 – Australia’s Worst Air Crash- Baker’s Creek


Introduction

A documentary series looking at the causes behind catastrophic accidents and training crash incidents during World War Two.

Outline

Bakers Creek, Australia, 13 June 1943. For the men about to board “Miss Every Morning Fixin”, the pressures of the War had been eased by a period of rest and relaxation in Queensland, but they were about to return to war operations in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea. They were never to return. Shortly after take-off the aircraft plunged into the ground killing everyone aboard – apart from one survivor, who would spend the rest of his life coping with the injuries he received that day. This accident is still Australia’s worse ever plane crash and yet it was hushed up by the Australian and US governments until after the war had ended, with the relatives being told that those on board had perished in a crash over the South Pacific.
