Summary On 2 December 1942, the B-24 Liberator, Little Eva, returning from a mission over New Guinea, was thrown off course by a violent storm. Running out of fuel and with no fix on their position, the American crew had no option but to bail out. So began one of the longest and most arduous searches ever mounted in the Australian outback
