Mendel Glacier hike/search for WWII aviators
“Coming Aug. 31 from
THE FRESNO BEE
Central California's Leading Newspaper
“Lost Flights: The Sierra’s deadly legacy,” a series of print stories and online reports by The Bee's Mark Grossi and Cyndee Fontana.
Come with us Aug. 31-Sept. 17 and relive the stories of doomed flights. Examine the Sierra’s dangerous terrain and weather. Learn why there are so many crashes and why it's so difficult to recover lost planes.
In the center of the series, Grossi and photographer Mark Crosse will bring the Sierra front and center when they hike to Mendel Glacier in search of the remains of airmen who were lost on a training flight in 1942. Join them as they blog live from the mountain.
The series will package stories, photos, maps, charts, videos, audio clips and blogs for an in-depth review of Sierra plane crashes.
You can join the journey now; enjoy early blogs, galleries and more at http://www.fresnobee.com/lostflights.
Be sure to bookmark the page so that you can keep up with the series as it unfolds in print and online Aug. 31 through Sept. 17, only in
The Fresno Bee and FresnoBee.com”
