    I remember watching these. Along with Navy Log and the Silent Service.

  2. I have watched this before. My dad was an air-sea rescue pilot at Thule in 1954-55. Flew H19s and SA16. They even had a B-17 in the hangar. Lots of pictures and some film. I'm actually working on a film about the building of Thule and its mission in the 1950s juxtaposed with its role today as a scientific research station for climate.
