Lady be Good (B-24)
Lady Be Good was an USAAF B-24D Liberator that disappeared without trace on its first combat mission during World War II. The plane, from 376th Bomb Group, had been on a bombing raid to Naples on April 4, 1943 when it was lost. Although the aircraft was thought to have crashed into the Mediterranean Sea with loss of its nine-man crew, it was eventually found 710 km (440 mi) inland in the Libyan Desert in 1958. The remains of all but one of its crew have been recovered.
Investigations concluded the crew failed to realise they had overflown their air base in a sandstorm. After continuing to fly south into the desert, they bailed out when the plane's fuel ran out. The survivors then died trying to walk to safety.

Product DescriptionEveryone in this movie is terrific, and the story, about the humorously tempestuous relationship of a songwriting couple played by Ann Sothern and Robert Young, is one of the better ones among musicals of the period. The songs and dances are great, too, with two of the high points being Sothern's "The Last Time I Saw Paris" and Eleanor Powell's dancing finale.

The ill-fated crew of the Lady Be Good, from the left: 1Lt. W.J. Hatton, pilot; 2Lt. R.F. Toner, copilot; 2Lt. D.P. Hays, navigator; 2Lt. J.S. Woravka, bombardier; TSgt. H.J. Ripslinger, engineer; TSgt. R.E. LaMotte, radio operator; SSgt. G.E. Shelly, gunner; SSgt. V.L. Moore, gunner; and SSgt. S.E. Adams, gunner. (U.S. Air Force photo) From the National Museum of the USAF: At 2:50 PM on April 4,1943, 25 B-24's of the 376th Bomb Group took off from their base at Soluch,Libya for a high altitude bombing mission against harbor facilities at Naples,Italy. All planes but one returned safely to Allied territory that night -- the one missing plane was the "Lady Be Good" (crews first mission). Almost 16 years later on November 9,1958, several British geologists were flying over the desolate, sun-baked Libyan Desert. At approximately 400 miles south of Soluch, they spotted an aircraft on the sand. A ground party that reached the site in March 1959 discovered the plane to be a B-24D. The "Lady Be Good" had been found. Evidence at the site indicated that the crew had become lost in the dark on return from Naples and had flown over their base and southward into the desert. As their fuel supply became depleted, the nine men aboard had bailed out but disappeared while attempting to walk northward to civilization. Intensive searches were made for clues as to the fate of the crew, and in 1960 the remains of eight were found, one (Lt. Woravka,chute failure) near the plane and the other seven far to the north. Five (Hatton,Toner,Hays,Adams and LaMotte) had trekked 78 miles across the tortuous sand before perishing, and one (Ripslinger) had gone an amazing 109 miles. In addition, they had lived eight days rather than the two expected of men in this area with little or no water. The body of the ninth man (Moore) was never found. From the Official Graves Registration Report: The aircraft flew on a 150 degree course toward Benina Airfield. The craft radioed for a directional reading from the HF/DF station at Benina and recieved a reading of 330 degrees from Benina. The actions of the pilot in flying 440 miles into the desert, however, indicated the navigator probably took a reciprocal reading off the back of the radio directional loop antenna from a position beyond and south of Benina but 'on course'. The pilot flew into the desert, thinking he was still over the Mediterranean and on his way to Benina. More: The "Lady Be Good" made a pilot-less belly landing and skidded for 700 yards before breaking in half behind the wings. The props on engines 1,2 and 3 were feathered and not under power at the time of the crash. The plane was well preserved considering the crash and harsh desert climate, one of the guns was still able to be fired, simply by pushing the trigger. The radio was removed and installed in a C-47 used in the recovery effort, it worked perfectly.
