Des & Judy Young have recently completed a trip to Koombit Tops National Park in Central Queensland. It is located between Monto, Biloela & Calliope. Besides having an interesting 4WD drive, another point of interest is that in February 1945, a U.S. Army Air Forces Liberator Bomber, “Beautiful Betsy” crashed there, however the wreckage was only discovered on 2 August 1994. The aircraft went missing in stormy weather on a flight from Darwin to Brisbane transporting men & supplies as part of a regular flight. The wreckage can still be seen.
