[This is a duplicated query]
David, hello from Venezuela.

We have been researching the crash of a OS2U Kingfisher aircraft in "Cerro Santa Ana" (Santa Ana mountain) in Paraguana, Falcon state, Venezuela, in July 1942 while serving in the Caribbean, at Curacao . A report pointed out the name of your father, James Stubbleine (the misspelling come from the report) & Russel Rupell, as crew of the plane.

Do you have any record of that crash? We have been unable to find more info on it.

There is a somehow nice story on what happened to the plane, that I will also like to share with you.

Thanks in advance
