A week or so back, there was a post over at Ace Of Spades about the new P-40 that was discovered in the North African desert, and how this had happened before with the B-24 "Lady Be Good". That bomber - and the remains of its crew - were discovered by an oil exploration team in the 1950s. A TV Movie, Sole Survivor was made in the late 1960s, staring (among others), William Shatner.
I remember watching it when it aired. I was 12 at the time, and it fascinated me and creeped me out at the same time. It was very Twilight Zone. This is how they made military dramas back when only two decades had passed from when every family had someone in uniform. Hollywood couldn't conceive anything like this today.
Well, someone has uploaded it to Youtube. Recommended, more than I can say.
Remember the crew of Lady Be Good, especially the one they couldn't find.
