Lew's Parachute Bailout Crash of P-39 North of Charters Towers which earned him the Parachute Card above.

"Captain Lew Lockhart was in Charters Towers, in north Queensland, Australia in January 1943 checking out in P-38s. On 28 January 1943 he was getting some flying time in a P-39 Airacobra when the coolant leaked out and he had to bail out somewhere north of Charters Towers airfield. The aircraft burned on impact as Lew Lockhart said he saw a lot of smoke. He walked onto a cattle station but cannot recall the name of the owner. Lew and the owner went back on horses several days later but could not find the P-39 Airacobra."

I have a better version of the video above to upload, that doesn't skip at the beginning and miss his introduction, and several more videos to upload... including the hike to see the Marlee 2, and interview with a native that saw the crash, some general videos about the 39th in New Guinea, etc. I just have to run them through a converter to the format the Youtube uploader will accept. Not a problem, just takes some time. So more videos are on the way...

I was at the mall yesterday and happened to see an elderly man...
