FRANKTON, Indiana — The remains of an Indiana man killed when a military transport airplane crashed into an Alaska mountain in 1952 while serving in the Air Force during the Korea War have been recovered.

The Herald Bulletin reports (http://bit.ly/1qCuoPY ) Howard Martin will be buried July 12 with full military honors in Elwood City Cemetery, alongside his parents.

All 52 aboard the C-124 Globemaster were killed on the night of Nov. 22, 1952. So far, 17 of the men have been identified, including 11 Air Force members.

Martin grew up in Dundee, about 45 miles northeast of Indianapolis.

Military officials say the remaining 35 service members have not yet been recovered from the wreckage, and the site will be monitored for possible future recovery efforts.
