Seems every now and again, they find old crash sites from the American/Russian lend lease program where the planes were missing and not found until a lot of years later. Same with general aviation, there are dozens of planes that are missing all over Alaska and Western Canada and once in a while a hunter or hiker comes across the wreckage of both types.

From what I've been reading, even crashes in the mid 1950s were impossible to spot from the air. It seems like planes have an affinity for heavy timber. The only way they are ever found is by hikers. And even when hikers have spotted the wreckage & a confirming team is dispatched by air, they still have to go in on the ground because the wreckage isn't visible from above. I really feel for the families that are left wondering for years what became of their loved ones. Never knowing if they were dead or alive.

Of cause the nature of Chukotka and Alaska are very similar ones because of these are the same two "sister" regions. Indeed, There was no the Bering Strait in prehistoric times, so Chukotka with Alaska had been a whole territory named Beringia.

Hey Highland, this is directed towards you. Wondering if you saw "Twilight" & what you thought of it. Don't mean to call you out, but I know how you like certain movies & celebrities so you were the first I thought of.
