The RAAF Hudson story: Book Two
The RAAF Hudson story explores the history of the Lockheed Hudson aircraft - notable for its role during Second World War. Expertly researched by respected aviation author David Vincent, the extensive findings are split across two volumes: Book One and Book Two.
The second book, Book Two, delves into the Hudson's usage across Australia and surrounding regions from the mid-1930s to the end of the Second World War, with one chapter dedicated to Operations in the North Western area (namely Darwin, Ambon, Timor and Koepang), and another to Operations in the North Eastern area (namely Queensland and Papua New Guinea). The book details the aircraft's usage as transport and as air ambulances, followed by commentary on post-war sales and civil usage from the mid-1940s to the early-2000s.
