Historic B-25 Being Prepped for Recovery
A plaque was placed yesterday (Thurs.) at the site a plane crash that occurred on a Tanana River sandbar near Fairbanks 44 years ago. It remembers the Mitchell B-25 bomber that went down while in service as a fire fighting air tanker on June 27th 1969. As KUAC’s Dan Bross reports, the marker was placed by a Michigan based team in Fairbanks to recover what’s left of the historic aircraft known as “Sandbar Mitchell” and restore it.
