Crashed March 4, 1942
It was initially believed this Hudson may have tried to fly through a tropical storm and might have crashed onto New Britain. In fact, this aircraft reached the target and crashed onto Urai Island off Gasmata. Also lost was Hudson A16-101.
On May 6, 2007, Mark Reichman visited the wreck site of a Hudson on Avurai Island. Based on the type of engine - GR1820-G205A - the wreck was determined to be a Hudson Mark III, and most likely the wreck of A16-165.
