From 1943 comes the extraordinary true story of junior and senior high students from South High School in Grand Rapids, Michigan who raised over $375,000 selling War Bonds and War Stamps and bought a B-17 Flying Fortress Bomber to help sup- port the war effort. They christened it The Spirit of South High  and watched as it flew off to war never to be heard from again, until now.
