Current status of the "Kee Bird" B-29 Superfortress
I found a interesting article today regarding the famous B-29 "Kee Bird" that was haphazardly (and unsuccessfully) rescued by Daryl Greenemyer and his team.
When the aircrafts charred remains were left on the ice where it came to rest, everybody thought that when the ice thawed out, that the remains would sink to the bottom, but apparently, it came to rest on a solid piece of ice and that recently its remains were recovered by Daryl's pilot (the name escapes me, but he was a relation of Baron von Richtofen and pilot of the crews DHC-4 Caribou), transfered to Thule AFB and then shipped to a unknown musuem in the Netherlands. I'm not sure on the validility of this information, so does anyone else know where the remains of the Kee Bird now rest?
