The search has begun: A US researcher is on the way to the Dollart, the mouth of the Ems near Leer/Emden and the Netherlands, to search for traces of the crashed World War II B-17 bomber "Miss Deal." The Americans use state-of-the-art technology to illuminate the Watt.
Will the mystery surrounding the remaining two crew members in the B-17 bomber be resolved after seven decades? With the current mission in the Dollart, the chances of bringing light into the darkness of history have at least increased.
