A hunter was walking through the woods near Juneau when he came across the site of a tragedy. Tangled in the impossibly thick southeast rainforest lay an airplane that had fallen from the sky, presumably during a legendary southeastern Alaska storm. Although just a mile and a half from the last known location, the missing plane was buried in the forest canopy and wasn’t visible from the air. In 2008, an exhaustive 10-Day search over 1000 square miles was conducted with no sign of a crash. The family of the passengers had no idea where their loved ones were…until recently.
