All we need is a WWII era biological weapon to start killing wildlife and people and we'll have a Clive Cussler plot.

They tried last year but didn't make much headway before winter. Recent warm spell helped this summer.

There are several of these crashes on glaciers that were never recovered. NW 4422 was partially recovered on Mt. Sanford 50 years after the fact..

I wonder if a similar fate was met by the plane hale Boggs was in?

Most likely. The flight path between Anchorage and Juneau probably has a lot of aircraft and bodies buried in the glaciers around Prince William Sound. It's part of the "Alaska Triangle." LINK

You're thinking "Flight of the Phoenix". That was in the Sahara.

John Wayne crashed this one..."Island in the Sky".

Just goes to show that the glacier is back to 1952 thickness.

Why would NUMA be searching for a plane crash? Did the biological agent somehow start leaking into a water source?
