A team from the lower 48 is coming to Fairbanks to salvage the long abandoned wreck of a World War 2 era bomber.  The Mitchell B-25 crashed while in post war service as a fire fighting aircraft, is now targeted by 2 Michigan men working on a B-25 restoration project.  As KUAC’s Dan Bross reports, the salvage is scheduled for later this month.

Dan has been in public radio news in Alaska since 1993. He’s worked as a reporter, newscaster and talk show host at stations in McGrath, Valdez and Fairbanks. Dan’s experience includes coverage of a wide range of topics, from wolf control to the Trans-Alaska Pipeline and dog mushing.
