1945 B29 Crew Rescue


Recommended Posts

My father, a WWII Navy vet, sent this link along yesterday...color film of rescue, 70 miles off the coast of Japan, of the crew of a B-29 shot down into the sea.

 

Now that had to make this fellow sit up and brighten up for a minute or two...

Towards the end of the war, a lot of Subs were on Lifeguard duty during air strikes whether AAC or Navy planes were involved. gave'em something to do, not much in the way of Japanese shipping left by then. Besides, many Co.'s stated they'd rather rescue an "Airdale" than sink what was left of the Merchant Marine. Better satisfaction to save a fellow service man's life........... :FlagAm: Buck
