ANCHORAGE, Alaska – The remains of about a third of the service members who died when their military transport plane crashed into an Alaska mountain and then was buried for decades in glacier ice have been identified, military officials said Wednesday.
The Department of Defense released the identities of 17 people onboard the C-124 Globemaster, which crashed in 1952, and said the remains will be returned to their families for burial with full military honors.
The plane from McChord Air Force Base, Washington, was headed to Elmendorf Air Force Base in Anchorage when it went down with 52 crew members and passengers aboard.
Efforts to reach the crash site immediately after the crash were halted by bad weather. Days later, a member of the Fairbanks Civil Air Patrol, along with a member of the 10th Air Rescue Squadron, landed at a glacier and positively identified the wreckage as the Globemaster.
“In late November and early December 1952, search parties were unable to locate and recover any of the service members,” the Department of Defense said in a statement.

Vehicle used and ID flashed by BSO impersonator at unsuspecting drivers.
Broward Sheriff’s Office Public Corruption Unit detectives arrested a man performing traffic stops last Friday in Broward and Palm Beach counties while posing as a BSO employee. Although the suspect says he only did this that day, detectives are looking for additional victims of this BSO impersonator.
On June 6, Tiago Monteiro driving a dark Volvo pulled over a car with a teen driver and two teen passengers near 400 N. Federal Hwy. Monteiro felt the teenage girl had cut him off. He stopped his car in front of hers, walked up to her car and ordered her to roll down her window. Monteiro acted with authority and quickly flashed an ID in a lanyard. He told the victim that he worked for BSO and asked to see her license and registration. After reviewing her documents, Monteiro told her he would let her go with a warning.
Hours later the impersonator pulled over a second victim. This time it was an adult man (William “Bill” Bucknam) in Boca Raton. He told Bucknam that he was a BSO detention technician and flashed a work ID from a telemarketing job. Again Monteiro asked to see his license and registration and again he told him he could go with a warning. Bucknam was suspicious and used his mobile phone to take photos of Monteiro, the Volvo and the tag. His actions were crucial in giving the BSO the information they find and apprehend Monteiro.
Public Corruption Unit detectives arrested Tiago Monteiro at his home in Coral Springs. He admitted to performing the fake traffic stops and stated he was targeting drivers whom he felt should not be behind the wheel. Monteiro had no police lights in his car, no weapon and no BSO identification. He is facing charges of impersonating an officer and false imprisonment.
Monteiro has never been employed by BSO but has applied 14 times; most recently on March 30, 2012. Monteiro has a history of mental health issues.
Detectives are asking for anyone who’s been a victim of Monteiro or anyone with additional information to contact BSO Detective Joshua Webb at 954-321-1100 or Broward Crime Stoppers, anonymously, at 954-493-TIPS (8477) or www.browardcrimestoppers.org.
