In 1942, at the peak of his civilian career, swing era bandleader Glenn Miller decided
to join the war effort during World War ll. He was first placed in the U.S. Army and then transferred to the Army Air Force where initially formed a large marching band that was to be the core of a network of service orchestras. While he was traveling to entertain
U.S. troops in France, the single-engine Army Air Force UC-64 Norseman (similar to above) carrying Major Glenn Miller disappeared in thick for over the English Channel
and no trace of the aircrew, passengers or the plane has ever been found. Miller’s
status is… missing in action.
