Description: Toronto, Bloomsbury / Madison Press. 1994, First Edition. (ISBN: 0747518262) Hard Cover with dust jacket. Ill.: Lou Sapienza, Cornelius Braun, David Kaufman, photography. William S.

"The real-life quest to free WWII planes (6 P-38 Lightnings and 2 B-17 Flying Fortress bombers), entombed within a Greenland glacier. They had become an Arctic legend. Tales of an entire squadron of war-birds from 1942 still sitting on the ice in Greenland were passed from one pilot to another. On a jaunt to the far north in 1980, two pilots from Atlanta, Georgia, heard the story and decided to look for the lost planes. What began as casual curiosity soon became a twelve-year adventure and a multimillion-dollar obsession. Here is the gripping, true story of how perseverance triumphed over seemingly impossible odds in pursuit of a dream." Slight bump at top of spine, very light wrinkling at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has wrinkling and tiny tear at top of spine - archivally taped, minor edge wrinkling, very light rubbing. Very Good/Very Good.
