Remains of the Australian Made Bristol Beaufort Mark V111Serial Number A9-190. These Australian made planes were a twin engine torpedo bomber with a crew of three. Designed for performing torpedo attack, aerial bombing and general reconnaissance missions. During the War, it was mostly women who did all the riveting on the Beaufort fuselages.

After flying out of Bamaga in 1945, the left engine cut out and on landing the plane ran off the runway due to lack of break pressure. No-one was injured.
