A clip from a roughly 12.5 minute documentary detailing the story of the Lost Squadron and the ongoing work by the Greenland Expedition Society to recover the aircraft. The Lost Squadron was a plane squadron flying across the Atlantic during WWII. The squadron had to emergency land in Greenland and were left there since where they were eventually burried under some 250 feet of ice and snow. The Greenland Expedition Society found the aircraft in 1989, and worked on an additional trip to recover the planes using a thermal meltdown generator dubbed the "super gopher" to bore a hole down into the ice. The thermal generator was engineered and built by Our-Way Inc.
