Great Navy Birds of Lake Michigan: The True Story of the Privateers of Lake
Michigan and the Aircraft They Rescued by Taras C.
the past thirty-five years, a small team of explorers have surveyed the southern
basin of Lake Michigan in search of World War II US Navy aircraft. The aircraft
were lost during mishaps that occurred during an almost forgotten naval project
which had trained thousands of aircraft carrier pilots between the years of 1942
Because the explorers became so proficient at locating
and recovering the aircraft, the Director of the National Naval Aviation Museum
engaged them in an effort to rescue dozens of aircraft for presentation to the
American public. Today, these wonderful machines, which had been used by the
Greatest Generation to preserve the world's freedom and liberty, are viewed by
and touch the lives of millions of people each year.

that is most known. The trials, troubles and effort to get there is almost
always forgotten. This book tells the stories of how the exploration team
succeeded through an odyssey within a realm no others have dared to
