Treasure in the North Sea: A ghost beneath the waves

A 19-year-old 2nd Lt. Norville Gorse during pilot training in California before departing to the European theater of operations during World War II. Gorse went on to serve as the co-pilot of a B-17 Flying Fortress bomber that he and the pilot were forced to ditch in the North Sea. Divers recently discovered the aircraft. Gorse is the uncle of Lt. Col. John Gorse, a C-130 Hercules pilot in the 440th Operations Group at Pope Army Airfield, North Carolina. (Courtesy photo)
