The loss, discovery, and rediscovery of the crew of U.S. Navy LA-9 at Kronborg Glacier, east Greenland

  • Kent Brooks (a1)

In January 1962, a US Navy aircraft patroling the Denmark Stait mysteriously disappeared. In spite of an international search continuing over several weeks, the crash was first found accidentally 4.5 years later by geologists, but subsequently it was discovered that all the bodies had not been returned. It was not until 2009 that the story was brought to a close with a ceremony at the naval air base in Jacksonville, Florida.
