Wreck of B24J Liberator Bomber Milady

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

The B-24J Liberator Bomber was developed and produced in response to a much needed requirement for the war effort in Europe and the Pacific. It was one of the most successful heavy bomber designs used during World War II and was used in all theatres of the war with great success. The remains of the wreck of this B-24J are significant as a tangible reminder of the air war conducted against the Japanese during World War II from Australian soil. It is also a tangible link to the association the 380th Bomb Group had in Australia and the specific role that it played in the war. This wreck is also representative of the aircraft flown by the USAF and RAAF crews and of the personal sacrifice that was made by these men. The significance of this site has been acknowledged by ex-servicemen and the community of the Northern Territory with the installation of a plaque and interpretive signage at the site. Please respect this heritage place by leaving the site as you find it. NOTE: this site can be inaccessible during the Wet Season.
