Earlier this year I had posted about Heaven Can Wait, the B-24 bomber that went down over Hansa Bay, New Guinea during World War II. My uncle, John W Emmer, Jr, was on board as aerial photographer along with 10 other crew members. The plane was discovered this past year.
This past weekend, October 13, 2018, family members of the Heaven Can Wait crew gathered in Victoria, Minnesota, along with a number of the Project Recover staff, for an event that included honoring the crew members and sharing stories about them, as well as learning more about Project Recover’s work and mission. This informal event was called the Heaven Can Wait Family Reunion.
