Possible human remains and debris recovered from 60-year-old crash site



HONOLULU —Sixty years after a U.S. military plane crashed in Alaska, the debris and remnants are finally being recovered.  A C-124 cargo plane went down in 1952 near Anchorage killing all 52 people on board.  The Hawaii based Joint POW Accounting Command, or JPAC, which researches and identifies military remains, went to the wreckage site.

“The team recovered material evidence such as some life support equipment, and some personal effects,” said Capitan Jamie Dobson from JPAC. “there were also some possible human remains recovered.”

KITV4 News talked to a family member of one of the victims, who says the discovery means they are one step closer to closure.
