    Default The most famous MIA of WW2

    Some of the older, wiser fellas certainly sensed it:
    Major Glenn Miller (*March 1, 1904; +December 15, 1944) of the United States Army Air Force.
    Before joining the USAAF in 1942 successful jazz musician (trombonist) and band leader. Hits like the "Chattanooga-Choo-Choo", "In the mood" or "Moonlight Serenade" are still popular today among jazz and swing fanciers.
    Being a patriot and a professed opponent of national socialism he joined the USAAF in September 1942, leading the Army Air Force Orchestra.
    In London Miller witnessed german V1 attacks, in the famous Abbey Road Studios he and the orchesta recorded several tunes, partially live transmissions by BBC London in german language.
    After Paris had been liberated the Army Air Force Orchestra was supposed to perform there in the famous "Olympia".
    Tragically Glenn Miller never reached Paris. During the flight from London to the french capitol on December 15th, 1944 Miller's plane vanished without a trace. The exact circumstances of the incident are still unknown. There are several versions circulating:
    -Millers plane crashed into the english channel due to icing of the planes wings.
    -A group of british bombers on their way back from a raid on Germany dropped their remaining bombs in the channel and hit Millers plane by accident in the thick fog.
    -Miller didn't die in the plane crash at all. There's a theory saying he died of lung cancer. The public however should get the impression of a heros death, not the dying of a sick man.
    Anyway, it's a fact that nothing ever was found of Glenn Miller, the crew or the plane.
    More details of the mistery, the band or the man himself? Please share!

    Just heard it on you tube! Made me laugh, a shame that it's that short.

    I'm sure there are longer versions out there.

    You guys have entirely too much free time on your hands! That chicken thing IS funny though, glad you found it. Being a huge Glenn Miller fan (not called Jazzman for nothing) I regret I can't add anything to help with the mystery of Miller's last flight. Nobody witnessed a crash and no wreckage or debris where ever found. His plane just vanished without a trace somewhere over the Channel. I hadn't heard the lung cancer story though, interesting. I have always thought it was wing icing that brought his plane down myself.
