Plot Summary

When a bomber believed to have crashed in the ocean 17 years ago is found in the Libyan desert, a Colonel and Major accompany the only surviving member of the crew, who is now a General to figure out what happened. The General claims that he and the other members of the crew jumped over the ocean when in reality he bailed out leaving the others to fend for themselves. And while the Colonel just wants the whole thing closed, the Major insists on finding the truth. And watching them are the ghosts of the crew. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Trivia The overall concept of the plane lost in the Libyan desert and not found until years after the war is based on the true story of the "Lady Be Good," a B-24 Liberator that overflew its base on the way back from Italy. The wreckage of the plane was discovered by a British oil exploration team in 1958. All but one of the bodies were found in 1960; the last was never found. See more »
