The shadow of an RAF Avro Vulcan over the wreckage of “Lady Be Good”, a Consolidated B-24 Liberator bomber lying on the Libyan desert, having crashed in 1943

In 1943, “Lady Be Good,” a brand new U.S. B-24D Liberator aircraft, disappeared on its return to Northern Africa after a mission over Italy in WW2. Following a confused radio transmission, the airplane apparently overflew its base in the middle of the night and traveled for an additional 2 hours in the dark into the middle of the desert. Hopelessly lost, it is believed the crew donned parachutes and abandoned the aircraft before leaving it to continue flying on its own. Neither the fate of the plane nor the crew would be known for over a decade, sparking rumors and leaving behind a mystery with elements that remain unsolved today.
