Beneath Haunted Waters and On the Matter of HeroesBeneath Haunted Waters and On the Matter of Heroes

Our speaker will be Peter Stekel, Author of “Final Flight: The Mystery of a WWII Plane Crash and the Frozen Airmen in the High Sierra”. Early in the morning of December 5, 1943 a B-24 Liberator bomber with a crew of six disappeared on a night navigation mission while returning to Hammer Field in Fresno, California. Later that day a second B-24 was lost while on a search mission for the first Liberator and wasn't found until 1955 - at the bottom of a reservoir. The co-pilot's father from the first airplane spent the next 15 years searching the Sierra Nevada Mountains and died shortly before his son's plane was found in 1960 - at the bottom of an alpine lake. Both Liberators still remain Beneath Haunted Waters. During World War II we lost more airplanes and crews to accidents than to combat against the Japanese. Were these boys who died while in training any more or any less heroic than their comrades who died in combat? Doors open at 06:30PM, lecture begins at 07:00PM. Admission is $20.00 for general public, $15.00 for FHC Members.
