Summer in Greenland is coming to a close and conditions are just right to continue the search for missing World War II heroes Lt. John Pritchard and Petty Officer 1st Class Benjamin Bottoms who have been missing since their J2F Grumman Duck airplane crashed during an attempted rescue Nov. 29, 1942.
A team of Coast Guardsmen and contractors leaves for Greenland this Friday to resume the search and the Compass will be covering it all.
The team will be using ground-penetrating radar to locate the anomaly in the ice cap found during last year’s expedition. If this goes successfully the team will melt down into the ice and hopefully confirm the location of the crash.
