COLONY GLACIER, Alaska -- A Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command (JPAC) recovery team works at the site where military aircraft wreckage was found on Colony Glacier, Alaska. The surface was marked with deep crevasses so the team took numerous safety precautions to mitigate the risk. The five-man teaminitially 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.
