Inspiration

A short story in our local newspaper in Port Chester, NY, in the early 1950’s caught my eye, because it mentioned the ice cap of Greenland. A buried American B-17 bomber had been discovered on the ice cap after having been missing since the Second World War. The article said the airplane was being flown to England when it got lost in a blizzard as it was about to land to refuel. The crew got out safely, but the bomber remained buried and hidden for many years. I could relate to that story. I remembered when we flew to Greenland how difficult it had been to land at BW-1 Air Force Base. After flying over the fjords with our wing tips almost touching the mountains on either side, the plane then had to make a sudden right turn into a slightly uphill runway. Since I had already written one Eskimo story, I thought this might be an interesting sequel.

    I drop a comment when I appreciate a post on a site or if I have something to add
    to the discussion. It’s a result of the sincerness displayed in
    the post I browsed. And after this post KING OF THE
    ICE CAP – Felix The Storyteller. I was actually moved enough to drop a thought :
    -) I actually do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright.
    Could it be only me or does it appear like some of these responses come across as if
    they are written by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are
    posting at other online sites, I would like to follow anything fresh
    you have to post. Would you list the complete urls of all your shared pages
    like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
