Body Found Near 1942 Crash Site: Hikers in Kings Canyon National Park in California discovered a body buried in ice in one of the park’s most inaccessible areas, and investigators believe the body could be the remains of a World War II Army Air Forces airman killed on a training flight that crashed in the Sierra Nevada in 1942, the Los Angeles Times reports. An investigator from DOD’s Joint POW-MIA Accounting Command has flown to California to join in efforts to extract the body from 13,710-foot high Mount Mandel. Wreckage from the crash of an Army Air Forces AT-7 was discovered in the same area in 1947, five years after the aircraft was reported missing.
