Heroes On Deck: WWII On Lake Michigan DVD


One – hour documentary narrated by legendary CBS and A&E anchorman Bill Kurtis, tells the story of forgotten World War II fighter planes at the bottom of Lake Michigan, the brave pilots who trained in them, and their link to U.S. victory in the Pacific.

One of these aircraft carriers came into Grand Traverse Bay in August of 1944 for training. The Lighthouse has a permanent exhibition on this story!
