Starboard (Right) Side - "Tail Shot"

Contributor - Anthony Gaster

Info Contributor - Robert Livingstone

The early 90th BG bases were pretty rough, and when the aircraft were being backed into their revetments, there were many tail strikes, driving the tail bumpers into the fuselage - continual damage. A local mod was devised which used spare RAAF Lockheed Hudson tail wheels, until HAD produced a mod used throughout the Pacific until the end of the war.
