Not to belabor the obvious, but during WW2 there were thousands of missing planes which have never been found.

My great uncle was bombardier on such a plane lost over Ploesti in the first daylight raids by the USAA.

The people who are related to the crew of the “Lady Be Good” at least now know what happened to their loved ones.

God Bless ALL of their souls and those of their families.

AMEN.
