Wreckage of Air Force plane that crashed in 1952 with 52 people aboard found on Alaska glacier

60 YEARS LATER - The massive wreckage was spotted soon after the heavy transport plane vanished on Nov. 22, 1952, with 41 passengers and 11 crew members, but it became buried in snow and likely churned beneath the surface of the glacier for decades, Army Capt. Jamie Dobson said.


ANCHORAGE, Alaska - The wreckage of a military plane found this month on an Alaska glacier is that of an Air Force plane that crashed in 1952, killing all 52 people aboard, military officials said Wednesday.

Army Capt. Jamie Dobson said evidence found at the crash site correlates with the missing C-124A Globemaster, but the military is not eliminating other possibilities because much investigation still needs to be done.

Processing DNA samples from relatives of those on board the plane could take up to six years, Dobson said.

"We're still at the very beginning of this investigation," she said. "This is very close to the starting line, not the finish line."

The Alaska National Guard discovered the wreckage and possibly bones June 10 on Colony Glacier, about 40 miles east of Anchorage. The wreckage was spotted soon after the heavy transport plane vanished Nov. 22, 1952, with 41 passengers and 11 crew members, but it became buried in snow and likely churned beneath the surface of the glacier for decades, Dobson said.

That story stole the plot from the Capetian America movie.

Instead of a super solider in the snow and ice, it was just a normal Air Force plane however.

Climate Change?

More confirmation that the Mudman don't like the cold. Had the nogs inhabited the area, or anywhere within hooptie distance, all that metal and aluminum woulda made its way to the scrap yard to be converted to cash for crack and dope.

As ignorant as some of 'Aldo Raine's' comments have gotten lately, I'm convinced that he is the long-lost
