MYSTERY MAY FINALLY BE SOLVED!

Alton Glenn Miller (March 1, 1904 – December 15, 1944)

People magazine recently reported a retired trawlerman from
England is “utterly convinced” he pulled up the wreck of the
famed American bandleader’s aircraft in his fishing net 32 years
ago. And now, U.S.-based historical aircraft researchers from
TIGHAR say his account is “totally credible.”

According to TIGHAR, which stands for The International Group
for Historic Aircraft Recovery, the man was advised to drop his
unusual catch back into the English Channel, where it has
remained ever since. But he recorded the coordinates and the
magazine noted it is this key piece of evidence that may finally
lead to the site of Miller’s final resting place.

Miller, recognized as “the hottest recording artist of his era,”
dominated the swing music scene during his lifetime and was
famous for his self-penned signature tune, 1939’s “Moonlight
Serenade.”
