Noorduyn Norseman Serial #2481 ???

Post by georgetanksherman » Mon Jun 11, 2018 6:21 pm

Not sure if anyone can answer this one, but what the heck, got to give it a go. On March 26, 1943, Noorduyn Norseman Serial #2481, R.C.A.F. No. 128 (F) squadron departed Ketchikan, Alaska, to return three American U.S.O. concert ladies to Annette Island, Alaska. The No. 122 squadron pilot S/L Fred Burpee Currie encountered a sudden snow squall white-out and attempted to land at Warburton Island, six miles North-West of Annette. Forced down by the heavy snow, the aircraft crashed into the sea, with all crew and passengers killed. F/L I.M. Dowling, F/L E.B. Stapleford, LAC E.K. McMichael, and

USO –
Miss Maxine March
Miss Adelaide J. Kaiser
Miss Christian Street

Does anyone have any info on these young ladies ???

Cheers
