I can't watch that video - the ending breaks my heart. No way I could watch that again.

A beautiful aircraft and a very remarkable photo. If you read the book, you can almost understand the risks taken to recover KeeBird. Unfortunately, I do not remember the name of the book but it is very exciting reading. I am not sharing how this story ended.

That was one of the saddest things I ever watched.

Looks as if the tail section cracked on impact?

Read a book years ago by John Ball called "Phase Three Alert" about the recovery of a bomber from the ice.

Sounds similar.

I dont think there are new pictures of this B29. If you watch the video, you will see why.

Blueashflyer - Same reaction here. Even though I sensed the recovery effort wasn't successful due to the way the TV documentary title was worded/promoted, the way it ended resulted in lost sleep that night. Very sad.

That is very neat. I wonder what the history is...
