Rescued By Submarine - 1945 -

Film Found 65 Years Later

To find the film after 65 years is amazing enough, but for the plane to crash right near the sub.... heaven would have to have been looking out for those young men.

Read the short note before viewing the clip.

AN AMAZING STORY worth watching... About 2.5 minutes.

An entire crew of a B-29 (12) was rescued by a US submarine after their plane was shot down in 1945, 70 miles off the coast of Japan. The entire rescue was filmed in color, but sat in a guy's closet until now.

This is a story from a Denver TV station of one of those rescued aviators to whom the video was delivered.

It also shows their transfer to another submarine that is likely headed back to port before the one that accomplished the rescue.

Can you imagine, 65 years AFTER your own rescue you get to watch it on film?
