Frozen in time : an epic story of survival and a modern quest for lost heroes of World War II [2]

In November 1942, a U.S. cargo plane crashed into the Greenland ice cap. A B-17 sent on the search-and-rescue mission got caught in a storm and also crashed. Miraculously, all nine men aboard survived. A second rescue operation was launched, but the plane, the Grumman Duck, flew into a storm and vanished. The survivors of the B-17 spent 148 days fighting to stay alive while waiting for rescue by explorer Bernt Balchen. Then in 2012, the U.S. Coast Guard and North South Polar mounted an expedition to solve the mystery of the vanished plane and to recover the remains of the lost plane's crew.

  • "On November 5, 1942, a U.S. cargo plane on a routine flight slammed into the Greenland ice cap. Four days later, a B-17 on the search-and-rescue mission became lost in a blinding storm and also crashed. Miraculously, all nine men on the B-17 survived. The U.S. military launched a second daring rescue operation, but the Grumman Duck amphibious plane sent to find the men flew into a severe storm and vanished. Mitchell Zuckoff offers a spellbinding account of these harrowing disasters and the fate of the survivors and their would-be saviors. Frozen in Time places us at the center of a group of valiant airmen fighting to stay alive through 148 days of a brutal Arctic winter by sheltering from subzero temperatures and vicious blizzards in the tail section of the broken B-17 until an expedition headed by famed Arctic explorer Bernt Balchen attempts to bring them to safety. But that is only part of the story. In present-day Greenland, Zuckoff joins the U.S. Coast Guard and North South Polar -- a company led by the indefatigable dreamer Lou Sapienza, who worked for years to solve the mystery of the Duck's last flight -- on a dangerous expedition to recover the remains of the lost plane's crew."@en
