(Dr.) Sherry Jilinski, Armed Forces Medical Examiner System medical examiner, review the Colony Glacier inventory list June 26, 2019, at the 673rd Medical Group, Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska. On November 22, 1952, a C-124 Globemaster II, which had 52 passengers and crewmembers aboard, crashed into Mount Gannett while flying from McChord Air Force Base, Washington, to Elmendorf Air Force Base, Alaska. At the time, weather conditions prevented an immediate recovery with later search attempts unable to locate the crash site. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Nicole Leidholm)
