Military Air Crews Spot Possible Aircraft Debris Near Alaska's Knik Glacier

Remnants Of The Aircraft 'Not Recent', According To AK National Guard

Alaska Army National Guard personnel on a routine mission have reported what may be debris from a military aircraft accident, and officials say that the wreckage may be of a "vintage" aircraft.

The crew was flying a UH-60 Blackhawk on a training mission in an area near the Knik Glacier about 1300 local time Friday when they made the discovery. Television station KTUU reports that they made a quick inspection of the site from the helicopter before returning to Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson.

The FAA has placed a TFR (pictured) over the site while it is being investigated. The NOTAM announcing the TFR says it will be in place until further notice. It encompasses the airspace in a two nautical mile circle around the accident site up to an altitude of 6,000 feet. Alaskan Command public affairs director Capt. Tania Bryan said that the wreckage did not appear to be of a modern aircraft, and that it was "not recent." There was also material which could be human remains at the site.

The U.S. Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command is also involved in the investigation. No further details are being released pending the possible notification of next of kin, Bryan said.
