Swamp Ghost B-17E Film Trailer

A five-man film crew accompanied Alfred "Fred" Hagen, of Bucks County, to Papua New Guinea in May 2006 to film the salvage of the World War II B-17E bomber, nicknamed the "Swamp Ghost," from the Agiambo Swamp, where it landed in 1942. A documentary is near completion on the plane's history and salvage, and on the adventures of Hagen and his recovery team.
