Tells of the C-47 cargo airplane crash on Mount Moran in Wyoming.
Other news of the day throughout. Light browning, otherwise in good condition.
wikipedia notes: On November 21, 1950, a C-47 cargo plane owned by the New Tribes Mission crashed on Mount Moran during a storm, killing all 21 on board. A rescue party organized by Paul Petzoldt located the wreckage on November 25, but the extreme location of the crash made it impossible to recover the plane or the bodies. The wreckage remains on the mountain today, but the Park Service discourages direct climbs to the site.
