Re: SWP Friendly Fire

In regards to Flying Officer Collier. Boomerang A46-88 (QE-H) was shot down by the U.S Navy. They had been attacked by Japanese aircraft during the previous days.
Also, on the 15th of November 1943, Flying Officer Robert Stewart of 4 Squadron was shot down in Boomerang A46-136 by Major (later Lt.Col) Gerald Johnston flying a P-47D with the 348th F.G..The Boomerang crashed and burned near Finschhafen, but F/O Stewart survived. Major Johnston visited the squadron and apologised personally.
