"You're Gonna Die Up There" Plane Crashes On 11,000ft Mountain In Denali National Park American Pilot & Four Polish Nationalists Die

4 AUGUST 2018

Tourists' icy tomb on 11,000ft mountain: Wreckage of plane is pictured perched precariously on Alaskan peak where it's too dangerous to retrieve four bodies from a crash after desperate pilot called for help before they all died in the wilderness 

Perched precariously on a mountain ridge near the top of North America's tallest peak, this is the wreckage of a sightseeing plane that crashed with the pilot and four Polish tourists on board. Searchers on Monday found four people dead in the plane in Alaska's Denali National Park - a day and a half after thick clouds hampered the response to distress calls that they were alive but injured. The fifth is missing and presumed dead.

The crash occurred in rough terrain, on a hanging glacier which traverses a crevasse, near the top of Thunder Mountain, about 14 miles southwest of Denali, North America's tallest mountain, on Saturday.
