You may have heard of the “Swamp Ghost,” but do you know the fascinating history behind this unique WWII B-17 Bomber?
After running out of fuel during a bombing mission in WWII, the Flying Fortress splashed into the Agaiambo Swamp in Papua New Guinea, settling into five feet of water and thick grass. She sat there for 64 years, only seen by Australian Army pilots who glimpsed it from overhead, giving her the nickname “Swamp Ghost.”
Year after year, this treasured piece of history was slowly fading away.
That is until aviation enthusiast Alfred Hagen and his crew, led the arduous recovery of the Swamp Ghost in 2006.
On Friday, Sept 11th at 9:00 a.m. HST / 3:00 p.m. EST, we spoke with Alfred Hagen about this aircraft’s journey from the Agaiambo swamp to her home at Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum.
