Team Recovers Remains from 1952 Plane Crash Site

A modern military identification team is working to identify the remains of fifty-two military members who perished when their C-124 transport plane went down in Alaska in 1952.  The plane left Seattle and crashed while on approach to Elmendorf Air Force Base near Anchorage.

The wreckage was quickly blanketed with snow.
