TV Movie | Not Rated | | Drama, Fantasy
This story is loosely based on the discovery of the B-24 "Liberator" bomber the "Lady Be Good" that was found in the Libyan desert after the crew got lost on their 1st bombing mission to Italy.
The overall concept of the plane lost in the Libyan desert and not found until years after the war is based on the true story of the "Lady Be Good," a B-24 Liberator that overflew its base on the way back from Italy. The wreckage of the plane was discovered by a British oil exploration team in 1958. All but one of the bodies were found in 1960; the last was never found.

Don't ask me. I'm only the man in charge.
