Where is Gemo Island ?
Just visited the crash site of this Catalina, nothing remains apart from a large area of melted aluminium and the odd small scrap of metal.
The picture shows his flight path into the island, TROVE has the details and how they suspect a mis set rudder trim caused the unexpected right hand turn at night into Gemo Island.
Pilot Fatigue would also play a part in the accident as the crew had just flown a 7.5 hour mission and were going out again for another patrol.
