Northrop A-17A Nomad 3521 recovered in Ontario

Two similar planes collided on 13 December 1940 over Lake Muskoka while on a rescue mission to find and help a third, killing both crews. One of the planes disappeared into the lake, where it lay until July 2010.

RAF 39219 F/L Peter Campbell (P)
RCAF R/53927 LAC Theodore Scribner (‘Ted’) Bates (O)

were recovered in October 2012 and laid to rest…
