Only the tail and flippers of the craft were intact, but the tail numbers were enough for an identification.
Moore said blood was found on a piece of blanket and there was a "sickly-sweet smell of death." The debris was discovered June 14 while Alaska National Guardsmen were flying a Blackhawk helicopter during a training mission near the glacier. Federal aviation officials implemented temporary flight restrictions over the area while the military investigation was conducted.
The five-man team initially went out to investigate the area, but deteriorating conditions on the glacier caused the team to transition into recovery mode to ensure the most amount of evidence could be recovered for further analysis at JPAC's Central Identification Laboratory.
(AP) ANCHORAGE, Alaska - The wreckage of a military plane found this month on an Alaska glacier is that of an Air Force plane that crashed in 1952, killing all 52 people aboard, military officials said Wednesday. Jamie Dobson said evidence found at the crash site correlates with the missing C-124A Globemaster, but the military is not eliminating other possibilities because much investigation still needs to be done.

According to an AP account, the civil air patrol member was Terris Moore, who was president of the University of Alaska.
After returning from the site, he told reporters that the plane "obviously was flying at full speed" when it hit Mount Gannett, sliding down the snow-covered cliffs, exploding and disintegrating over two or three acres.
Soon after the crash, a 12-member military team tried three times to make it to the site, but was thwarted by bad weather, said Tonja Anderson, whose grandfather Isaac Anderson was among those on board the doomed flight.
