Description

Dr. Clyde Fenton was making a night flight from Ord River, WA, to Wave Hill with Dr W.G Woolnough but was unable to locate the beacon and made a precautionary landing with the throttle linkage broken. He took off without Dr Woolnough the next morning and discovered he was 10 miles from Victoria River Downs, but crashed and so walked to the Station. Dr Woolnough was later collected by a ground party.
