A Mystery Unsolved: The Loss of Catalina A24-49
On April 28, 1944 Catalina A24-49 went missing after leaving Groot Eylandt in the Gulf of Carpentaria. With a crew of ten and a full load of fuel and pre-primed mines, it was on a minelaying mission to Manokwari Harbour in what was then the Dutch East Indies.
Nothing further was heard from the aircraft. It never reached its intended target and when it failed to return, was declared Missing In Action (MIA). In the 71 years since, no trace has been found of the aircraft or pilot Warwick Rose and his brave young crew.
