Military officials say a team is continuing to remove debris on an Alaska glacier from an Air Force plane that crashed in 1952, killing all 52 people on board.
Officials say the military team has been sent to Colony Glacier to remove airplane parts, not items needed to identify people on board.
The debris of the C-124 Globemaster was discovered June 10 by Alaska Army National Guardsmen flying a helicopter. The aircrew conducted aerial surveillance of the site to ensure it was aircraft debris before returning to Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson.
Later in June, members of the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command team recovered materials like a life-support system from the wreckage and possible bones from the glacier. The evidence was being taken to the command’s lab in Hawaii for analysis.
