Korean War Airman Identified: Air Force pilot Lt. Alvin Crane has been missing since his T-6F took off from Camp K-47 in Korea on Sept. 13, 1951—a mission that ended with North Korean forces shooting down the aircraft. The remains of his co-pilot—Sgt. Gordon Zorn—were found a year later, according to the Hernando Today newspaper, but it would be more than 30 years later before other remains were discovered. A lengthy identification process ensured and DNA results finally confirmed the remains were those of Crane.
