The remains of an F-22 Raptor pilot who died when his jet crashed south of the Denali Highway near Cantwell on Nov. 16 have been recovered, and the joint Air Force and Army cleanup at the site has been suspended, military officials said Wednesday.
"They can't do anything right now because of the weather up there," said Air Force spokesman Bob Hall.
The Air Force warned against souvenir hunting at the site.
"The health risks become significant if you don't have the proper equipment and are cutting or grinding pieces of the airplane," Friedrichs said. Maintenance crews routinely use thick gloves, eye protection and respirators when working on the plane, officials said.
Water filled the crater after the crash, then turned to ice. Air Force officials said they are concerned about what will happen during breakup, when melting snow and runoff could expose additional material from the plane.
