Crew of B-24 lost 70 years ago to be commemorated

Seventy years after an 11-man crew of a B-24 bomber went down in the waters off Long Island, the American Airpower Museum in East Farmingdale will have a flyover ceremony on Monday, April 7, 2014. Last spring, fishermen found what appears to be the plane's landing gear. The ceremony will include WWII bomber pilots and crew, some of whom discussed their experiences on Friday, April 4, 2014.
