DAKOTA C-53: A new chapter to an old story

2.4 tons of material were recovered this week on the Gauli Glacier in the Bernese Alps: a small part of the wreckage of a US military aircraft that crashed in 1946. The hot summer of 2018 caused the ice to melt, bringing the wreckage to the surface, and further parts of the C-53 Dakota are expected to be uncovered in the future. A good deal of emotion is associated with this story in the region.
