Wow! This is so very interesting. I think of all the dedication and determination he put into finding who the crew was in this plane crash. Such a kind thing to do. Thanks for documenting this for us; Paul
Outstanding video. It was truly emotional to watch the efforts of the team to find, recognize, and then honor the crew of “King Size”; First City Traveller
If someone made a movie about Parachute Pete I’d watch that. Hard to believe he was able to survive two crashes in a few week period. Amazing work SNAFU DOCS; Mont
Phenomenal documentary. Truly the greatest generation; Darren
Exceptionally well done!! Thank you to all involved especially Victor who never gave up his quest. Thank you so much from this son of a WW2 Battle of the Bulge survivor; Joseph

Merci beaucoup pour le partage de ce beau reportage vraiment très intéressant et émouvant; Thierry
I was especially moved because my late dad was in the war (but stateside with the Navy). Dad would have been 100 this year, so these men were his peers. Thank you for finding and preserving history; P.J.
What an amazing story, 100% praise to Victor Yansenne for his dedication to the crew of ‘King Size’, one of many MIA aircraft and crew that are still being recovered to this day. Lest We Forget; Mr. Tibbs
Just waw.The perseverance of this peoples is amazing.Victors dream came reality.I will soon visit the memory and show respect for the crew and all soldiers who gave their young live for the liberation of Europe; Marc
Not a dry eye in our house. We knew of so many that fought and lived to tell, and knew of so many who never returned. I personally knew those who fought and lived, barely. Some walking wounded till the end of their days. We must never forget Americas sacrifice of her youth for Europe, thrice in a century, and all who sacrificed; Emily
Amazing film, brilliant and emotional story. Thankyou for sharing this, I hope there’s more films like this in the future. Great work SNAFU DOCS; Lee
I loved this! Very well made, great subject and big respect to you and your team Joey. I appreciate the time that goes into making these documentaries on limited budgets but am excited to see the next one whenever the time comes; James
This should be shown every school so this is never forgotten maybe something might sink into the youth of tomorrow; Doug
Another home run boys! Absolutely amazing work; jmpmc
