This story exposes significant historical events that been largely neglected or completely forgotten by today’s contemporary society. It tells the tale of the World War 2 Beaufighter Aircraft – known by the Japanese as Whispering Death, a fast heavily armed and almost indestructible aircraft, and its indefatigable Australian crews. Together they helped tip the balance against the invading Japanese during the dark days of 1942-43, once and for all ending the Japanese territorial ambitions toward New Guinea during the crucial Battle of the Bismarck Sea. The pivotal role played by Australia’s (at the time) large and efficient aircraft industry is documented on archival film, along with the men of 30 and 31 Squadrons who flew the Beaufighters from bases in the Northern Territory and the frontline at Port Moresby and the islands to the north.
