B-24 Bomber Lady Be Good. This aircraft was discovered in the Libyan Desert 16 years after it lost its way back from a World War II mission to bomb Naples, Italy on 4 April 1943. The plane was found in 1959 by an oil exploration team, miraculously preserved by the desert environment. The next year the bodies of eight of the nine crew members were recovered by Quartermaster Graves Registration personnel.

That’s interesting, I never knew that any of the crew was found. Thanks JPB.

The movie Flight of the Phoenix uses a similar plot theme from the story of the Lady be Good.

I saw the movie “Sole Survivor”. This was an excellent movie (made for TV), though haunting based on the “Lady Be Good” .
