Not Forgotten

Ernie Hand recalls the gasoline fireball filling the plane up to his ankles. He had managed to bring the U.S. Navy P2V-7LP Neptune back to the edge of the ice shelf before the crash landing that sent the converted bomber skidding across a half-mile of ice. Fifty years later, a memorial to the men who died and survived that tragedy was erected in Antarctica.
