Here is a bit of local news that you might find interesting:
The condensed version: in 1952, 23 year old Airman George Ingram was killed when the C-124 he was aboard crashed in a storm in Anchorage, Alaska. On
board were a total of over 50 individuals. They were forced to try to land when the weather turned bad. So bad that a search party couldn't be sent
out until 3 days later. The wreckage was located, but when the recovery team went to the site a few days later, it could no longer be located, and
everyone aboard the plane was declared dead.
The wreckage remained hidden until it was spotted 60 years later by the National Guard in July 2012, 12 miles away from the original crash site due to
the movement of the glacier the wreckage was on. The bodies were recovered and identified using DNA records.
Airman Ingram will be transported from Milwaukee this evening and will receive a full military funeral tomorrow morning.
Just a very interesting story that I wanted to share.
