Lady's men

Product description

In April 1943 "Lady Be Good", an American World War II Liberator bomber, vanished at night while returning to her base near Benghazi, Libya, after a dusk mission to Naples. Attempts to find her proved unsuccessful. 15 years later, BP Oil geologists accidentally spotted her - almost intact - from the air, while on an aerial reconnaissance over South Central Libya. The sighting was reported to the US air base in Tripoli, but there was no investigation. A second sighting by the BP oilmen was reported to the RAF, but again no interest was shown. In February 1959 "Lady Be Good" was seen for the third time, and her eventual ground discovery was to result in the story of the aircraft and her crew's desperate fight to survive in hostile surroundings. The saga is one which Mario Martinez has researched for years. This is his account of what happened to "LBG", how she was found, and the significance of her crew's struggle to survive after parachuting into the unknown desert.
