OCTOBER 6, 1943


From Fletcher Hank's, "WHEN AND HOW THE CNAC CRASHES HAPPENED ON THE HUMP AND ITS ENVIRONS DURING WWII" (hand-dated 5/4/02)

George Robertson with James Charville, 10/06/43, C-47 #69. No fatalities. Crashed on takeoff, lost oil pressure on one engine. "Robby" feathered the propeller and came around for a landing but had no hydraulic pressure so couldn't get landing gear up or locked down and loosing altitude and speed. Crashed and burned. The crew escaped.
