Body of Airman Recovered from Glacier Identified: The Pentagon has identified the remains from a remote Sierra Nevada glacier as Leo A. Mustonen of Brainerd, Minn. Mustonen was the pilot of an Army Air Forces AT-7 training flight that crashed in 1942 in Kings Canyon National Park. A hiker spotted aircraft wreckage a few years later, but it would be October 2005 before someone spotted a body in the ice. Three other airmen also were killed in the flight.
