Under Lake Muskoka’s murky surface, the shattered remains of one of the world’s only known Northrop Nomad A-17As- a Second World War plane – rests silently in wait.
Eighty feet of water, silty sands, algae and 71 years of mystery shrouded its location until recently. Now, whether or not the plane will ever again see the unfiltered light of day is the focus of a group who in 2004, took up the hunt for her hidden grave and the remains of the two military officers who fell under Lake Muskoka’s icy surface Dec. 13, 1940.
