"It’s amazing that we can even explore like this and look back in such details even after 100 years."
"Very interesting, is there a movie, there should be."

Plane found 77 years after it crashed
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh had previously reported that a missing plane that crashed in India in 1945 was found 77 years after it went down.
The C-46 aircraft was found around the Himalayas area after months of endless search. Photos of the wreckage were later released.
When it crashed in 1945, the plane took with it the lives of 14 persons who were on board and there was no trace of it until now.
