You can read about the Kee Bird here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kee_Bird . It crashed in the Arctic and there was an attempt to repair and fly it out which ended in further destroying the plane by fire.
This is the plane as it was in 1988. My father took this photo while in Greenland with the USAF. Not to be reproduced without permission.
