This WWII-era CAC Boomerang instrument panel resides in the collection of our friend Charles Darby of New Zealand.
According to Charles:
"This panel is from A46-115, which entered RAAF service 1 Aug 1943 and served with 4 Sqn. in New Guinea. It crashed on landing at its base, Newton Strip (Nadzab #4 Strip), on 12 June 1944 and four days later was allotted to 22 Repair & Salvage Unit for parts recovery action. In 1973 I found its fuselage, together with several others, in an overgrown area beside Newton Strip."
