display_description 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.
