Default Req pics of CAC Boomerang A46 - 90

Hello All


(my wife) heard on the radio this morning a local in South Australia has
acquired a CAC Boomerang for restoraton and would like a pic of it in
wartime colours - including squadron codes.


If anyone has a photo or unit details, could they post it on a.b.p.a.

Cheers

Its better to ring RAAF Historical (Janet Beck) in Canberra and request a
history sheet and ask about squadron code, THEN, ring RAAF MUSEUM library
(Monica Walsh)and see if they have a photo of that particular aircraft.
Thats what I had to do with my couple I have here.

Cheers,
Chris

Thanks Chris, been there, got the T-shirt, read the book and seen the
movie.


The site only has the squadron that the plane was posted to (and hence the
codes) however the individual letter and paint scheme, still eludes us.

Thanks and cheers
