The Lost Squadron

By Hayes, David




On July 15, 1942, a squadron of six P-38 Lightnings and two B-17 Flying Fortress bombers was flying from Greenland to Iceland when they ran head-on into an Arctic blizzard. As conditions deteriorated they decided to turn back, only to then discover that the base there [Greenland] was socked in. Running desperately low on fuel the two bombers and six fighter planes crash-landed on the ice cap in the largest forced landing in history. The crews had been rescued but their brand-new warplanes were left on the ice cap. Pat Epps and Richard Taylor heard the story in August 1980. For the next twelve years, this story would lead Epps and Taylor into an extraordinary adventure that would prove more challenging then either of them would have dreamed possible. The planes lay 260 ft down, under the ice, the equivalent of a 25 story building. And no machine in existence was capable of digging hundreds of feet into solid ice to retrieve a ten-ton airplane with a fifty-two foot wingspan. Here, the story is grippingly told and lavishly illustrated with hundreds of fascinating photographs, paintings and diagrams.

London: Bloomsbury Publications. Very Good+ in Very Good+ dust jacket. 1994. First Edition. Hardcover. 0747518262 . DJ shows very light shelf wear. Gift inscription on front pastedown. ; A bright, solid book, dustjacket in Mylar, unclipped. ; B&W and Colour photographs; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 224 pages; During World War II in 1942, a fleet of warplanes consisting of two B-17 "Flying Fortress" bombers and six P-38 Lightning fighters were flying on a transfer run from North America to Scotland. During the leg of the flight from Greenland to Iceland, they ran into severe weather over the Denmark Strait and were forced to turn back. Unfortunately, all the landing fields within their fuel range were socked in under the same weather conditions. Running low on fuel, the two bombers and four of the Lightning fighters were forced to crash-land on the coast of Greenland. All personnel survived the landings and were eventually rescued, however the aircraft were abandoned to the elements. Over 50 years later, and expedition was mounted by Pat Epps and Richard Taylor to possibly recover one or more of the aircraft, by this time under more than 200 feet of snow and ice. This book is an account of the search, discovery and eventual recovery of one of the P-38's by one of the expedition members. .

THE LOST SQUADRON.

Hayes, David.

Toronto: Bloomsbury / Madison Press, 1994. 223 pp, 11 1/4" H. Profusely illustrated with b&w and colour photographs, maps, reproductions. "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.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good.

The dust jacket has a 2 cm tear at the top of the spine (ref photo) otherwise a fine copy "In July 1942 a squadron of brand-new American warplanes desperately needed by the Allied war effort was flying to England via Greenland and Iceland. Caught in a blinding blizzard and running short of fuel, the two B-17 bombers and six P-38 Lightnings crashlanded on Greenland's vast glaciers. The crews were evacuated safely, but the aircraft had to be left behind.;Nearly forty years later, Pat Epps and Richard Taylor, two Atlanta-based aviation enthusiasts, learned of the lost squadron during a stopover in Greenland after a flight across the North Pole in 1981. In the years since the crash, Greenland's winters had dumped tons of snow on the abandoned aircraft, but using magnetometers and a sophisticated radar system designed to probe beneath deep ice, Epps and Taylor located the planes - lying 260 feet below the surface and resolved to dig them out. They finally succeeded in 1993.;"The Lost Squadron" celebrates the spirit of adventure and the perseverance of the members of the Greenland Expedition as, equipped with little more than enthusiasm and dogged determination, they bring one of the P-38s of the lost squadron home to fly the skies once again."
