I remember seeing a documentary about a bunch of guys trying to rescue a
B-17 (I think, WW II, silver colour etc.) from either greenland or
from some similar cold place (it's -30 celsius outside at the moment
so I *can* relate :-) It was a truly sad documentary. One member of the
team got pneumonia and passed away, they had a million obstacles in their

I don't remember the name of the documentary but I'd love to see it again.

(spoiler warning...)

After the said obstacles they were able to repair the plane, created
a makeshift runway on the glacier, taxiid the plane to the end of
the runway (excitement building up here...) and the plane caught fire
and burned down.

It was a *very* sad moment.
