The Swamp Ghost

1942 Aerial Photographs
This is a collection of the only known wartime photos of B-17E 41-2446 taken in 1942 after its force landing in the swamp. Pilot Fred Eaton recalled swooping down to orbit the bomber himself when he returned to combat duty. As the war moved forward, the bomber was forgotten, and mostly overgrown by kunai grass.
