The federal government devotes extensive time, effort, and money to the search for soldiers who went missing in -- and are presumed dead from -- battles dating back to the 1940s. This episode of PBS' Nova focuses on the search for the men of Bomber 31, a plane which was supposed to fly from the Arctic Circle, loaded with bombs intended for Japan, and was never seen again.
