    Default The Dottie Mae P-47 Thunderbolt

    World War II plane that was lost to time has been resurrected in Idaho. The iconic plane will soon be on display at the Warhawk Air Museum.
    The Dottie Mae P-47 Thunderbolt was part of the 511th Fighter Squadron where it flew dozens of missions.
    On May 8, 1945, the Dottie Mae went down during a morale flight over a lake in Austria. It's believed to be the final plane lost during World War II in the European theatre.
    The Dottie Mae sank to the bottom of that lake and sat there for decades. But finally after 60 years, it was saved by a group lead in part by Bob Nightingale.
