News last week indicated that wreckage of a Norseman aircraft was pulled up back in the 80,s by a fisherman in the English Channel and then let go back down in the water . Now a research team is working with that fisherman to relocate the wreckage and pull it back up to examine whats left of the aircraft. There are many airplanes at the bottom of the channel but the Norseman is unique in its structure and being a US military airplane would have had the upgraded Pratt and Whitney double wasp engine. If this airplane is found and IDed , and is Glenn's plane, it will end the Mystery of what happened to Glenn Miller, and the crew members. RIP

Thanks, Fred, for posting this in the Musicians forum back in January.

There was a theory that the fuel line iced up and caused the plane to crash into the English Channel. But the Norseman C-64 10 passenger plane was originally designed and built for the Canadian Arctic, so that seems pretty unlikely. The possibility that the plane was shot down and then covered up seems reasonable. Another theory, hit by jettisoned bombs by returning Allied bombers is also possible.
