Grave fears for fliers search again fruitless hopeful report fails to bring clue big area combed Darwin saturday. After having combed another big area in the search for the . Fliers who Are missing in their dragon rapid plane the search patrol returned to Newcastle Waters this afternoon with no further clue to the airmen s whereabouts. Grave anxiety now exists for their safety four Days search having been fruitless. The search was taken up with renewed Hope today when a report was received that the missing rapid had been heard North North East of wave Hill after the time it had been reported passing new Castle Waters but four search planes scoured the area without result. Although contradictory reports have been received about the movements of Pilot Affleck who left Broome yesterday to join in the search it is known that he has arrive pm at wave Hill safely. The search planes this morning flew South from Willinia to the Mur Ranji track and then Cut Back to wave Hill where they landed at 10.15 . Tak ing off again at 1.30. They flew in a South Easterly direction Over the great australian desert near where the Kookaburra plane was lost in the tragedy of 1929. � at 3 pin. The planes reported that they were returning to Newcastle Waters and that the search was finish ing for the Day. The tour planes which went out to Day were the two .f. Hawker demons the Qantas dh86 Reserve Nia Hon an j the australian Aerial medical service Mot following this morning s flight a conf rence of a floor to held at wave Hill add notified the air Board that it pad been decided that two Hawker demons and the Fox Moth would ate wave Hill As a base in further flights. The mining airmen on air Board Alee talons Are Down in the wild Granite and Mulga country 156 Miles North West of Newcastle Waters and 60 or 70 Miles North West of wave Hill. Because of the rough nature in he country and the fact that the missing plane a twin engined dragon rapid. Has High minimum Landing Speed it is feared that the airmen have was Hie third Day of the search and the air Board said in Melbourne lost night that the most Likely areas had been thoroughly traversed. The search received a severe set Back ver erday when one of the Rescue j planes the air Force gannet was partly wrecked while searching the desert the Macrobertson Miller aviation co s. Dh84 dragon Moth arrived Ati wave Hill at 7.30 pjn., and took the gannet s place in the search today it was reported from wave Hill last night that after the engine mishap to the gannet the other engine was Able Only to maintain sufficient flying Speed to stagger Back to the Homestead land ing ground. The damage was too Ereal to effect repairs and a new engine was required. The gannet is now definitely out of the search. All natives have been instructed by Lieut. Carr. Who is in charge of the gannet. To go farther afield with Bush Telegraph signals and to report immediately if they locate a Diane. The missing .f. Men Are flight Lieut. W. L. Hely and air craftsmen h. Walkington and r. B. Sherwood. They Are believed to have passed Over new Castle Waters at 11 . On their Way 1o wave Hill in an air Force dragon Ranide Survey machine. Rifles and ammunition were supplied to the missing Crew and the plane i carried signal lights and trip cloths1 for Day signalling. Search on systematic basis major Coleman. Of the air Board., said today that the task of locate ing the men would be exceedingly j difficult because the Silver coloured fuselage of the rapid would merge j with the Grey Mulga. The As sence of smoke signals was Dis j quieting also and indicated the possibility that the men were injured. It was significant that Pilot g. U. Allen flew the Qantas machine fester Day Over areas adjacent to those in today s search with negative results. The search he said had now been established on a systematic basis and 8t All pilots engaged had had consider Able flying experience in North Australia there was every Hope that the airmen would be found. Flight Lieut. Carr. Whose gannet monoplane was put out of action be cause of engine trouble yesterday will act As Relief Pilot during the search. Meanwhile a spare engine will be sent to wave Hill to be fitted in the plane. G. Mccausland senior Pilot of the Macrobertson Miller aviation co. Who has had 18 months flying experience of the locality where the airmen Are thought to have been forced Down expressed the opinion today that the machine had been lost Between Brun Ette Downs and Newcastle Waters. Without any definite information that the plane passed Over new ? Castle Waters he said it is pos sible that in flying from Ern Nelte Downs the Pilot followed one of the. Many cattle pads or track leading from there which could easily be i mistaken from the air for a Road. A Pilot following one of these would quickly get lost and find it difficult to locate the main Road again to new Castle Waters. I even if the airmen located the Emer gency ground at Mon Mona it would also be possible for them to follow the wrong Road that would not Lead to Newcastle Waters he suggested that Searcie be under taken in All directions from Brunette towns. As the men might easily be 100 Miles or More in one of several directions from that locality. The country was so treacherous. Mccausland said that the men would find it difficult not to go astray. Sydney. Saturday. An entire absence of accurate information regard ing weather conditions prevailing at the time the missing rapid was Fly ing Between Camo Owea and Hail Creek on monday is thought by j .f. Officials at Richmond to be a j Factor tending to delay their efforts in directing search operation. Not one report about the move ments of the rapid has mentioned Tje weather immediately before or after the machine is thought to have passed Over said a High air Force of facial today. If the rapid were known to have seen Likely to encounter heavy rain or thunderstorms in any particular Sec Tion of the country we would be Able to assume that the Pilot May have de idea to deviate right or left from his Ourse and on any Assumption formed i a Able to plot on the map a problematic course taken by Hely until compelled to und we do not know for certain if any extensive rain has fallen recently in the area where the rapid is thought to be Down said Wing commander Bostock. However the Crew of the rapid could be depended on to make their rations last As Long As possible and Hely would certainly conduct an immediate search for soaks in the Hope of finding water. ? it must be remembered that capt Pittendrigh and or. S. I. Ham re several i years ago existed for nearly three weeks in Central Australia on a diet of grass and insect life when forced to land in inhospitable country during a Survey bight but they were fortunate to be lost near an adequate water Supply. It is quite possible however that the fliers Are Iown in a part of the country1 where no matter How deeply they dig they will never locate water Wing commander Bostock added that the greater por Ion of the photo graphic stores needed for the work about to be undertaken on the North West Coart had been sent by Boa from Perth. The machine therefore was being operated Well within its specified loading under air ministry regulations. Another air Force officer discussing the chances of the rapid having landed safely said that although the machine had a fast Landing Speed a Safe Landing would depend on the class of country and the amount of under growth. The plane was not heavily loaded and Only one camera and a nominal amount of photographic material was carried. After his gelding Fajardo had won the Tattersall cup at Victoria Park this afternoon cheers were called for the owner or. J. Bond. In this group Are from left the chairman of the Tattersall club or.
