|Pilot Flying Officer Albert Norman Saward, 4213297 (MIA / KIA) Auckland, NZ
MIA January 15, 1945
Returning, the formation encountered bad weather. This Corsair dove into the sea shortly after an aerial collision with Corsair NZ5408 while flying at low altitude through a tropical storm. Possibly, this Corsair hit debris from the aircraft that collided and caused it to crash. When it failed to return it was officially listed as Missing In Action (MIA). This aircraft was officially written off the books at Green Island.
