On 20 July 1947 this Fairey Firefly Second World War-era, carrier-borne, fighter aircraft crashed into the sea off Frankston, Victoria as the result of a collision between another Fairy Firefly at 1500 feet.
We have the GPS marks and details for what might be two or three Fairey Firefly Aircraft wreck sites near Frankston on the eastern side of Port Phillip.
The GPS marks for the Firefly Aircraft 1 and Firefly Aircraft 2 are 50 metres apart. It might be two separate aircraft, or the broken up and separated parts of a single aircraft. We simply don't know.
The GPS marks for the Firefly Aircraft 1 and Firefly Aircraft 3 are 205 metres apart.
If you have further information about these aircraft wreck sites, please contact us.
