Clip | 6m 10s Video has closed captioning.

WFSU's Mike Plummer shows us the fateful story of a World War II era B-17 bomber that crashed at Saint Marks on a summer day in 1944. The plane went down carrying a crew of ten men...only one airman survived. Long forgotten, the wreckage was rediscovered in 2011. A historic marker is now in place so the story of these men won't be forgotten again.
