ANCHORAGE, Alaska—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.
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.
