Rescue At Sea in WW II

Posted in History by TeeJaw on Friday, January 28, 2011, 8: 26 AM

Army Air Force crew of a B-29 (12 aviators) was rescued by a U.S. Navy submarine after their plane was shot down, 70 miles off the coast of Japan. The entire rescue was filmed in color, but then sat in a closet until now. This is a story from a Denver TV station of one of those rescued aviators to whom the video was delivered, more than 60 years later.

Chris Vanderveen reports. Denver’s 9NEWS at 6 p.m. 11/11/10 [click here to view video]
