    Default Mustang Loss

    G'day Paul

    Mustang s/n 9558 coded AC*A of No. 402 'City of Winnipeg' (FB) Squadron Auxiliary crashed at Teslin Lake, Yukon Territory on the 10th of July 1952, when the port wing failed while attempting to pull out of a low-level dive during a practice dive-bombing exercise. The aircraft was destroyed.

    I also noted a number of errors in the newspaper article.

    Cheers...Chris
