about this item

The rarely known story of a father's search for his son's body after one of the most mysterious and tragic plane crashes in war history.

Beneath Haunted Waters is the story of two B-24 Liberator bombers that disappeared in California's Sierra Nevada Mountains in early December, 1943. One plane wasn't found until 1955 at the bottom of a reservoir. The other plane was discovered in 1960 at the bottom of a lake, high in the mountains. It’s the story of these planes and their two crews and how they died so young, as well as the story of a father's devotion: Clinton Hester looked for his pilot-son Robert's body for the next 16 years, dying one year before Robert's body was discovered within ten miles of where Clinton thought it would be. California named the crash site Hester Lake in his honor.
