In the Swiss mountains, they found the wreckage of a plane that crashed in 1968

The wreckage of a plane that crashed in 1968 was found on the Aletsch Glacier in the Swiss Alps on Thursday. The remains of the plane appeared near the peaks of Jungfrau and Mönch. Climate change and melting glaciers contributed to the discovery. This was reported by AFP with reference to the Swiss police.

“Investigations have determined that the parts are from the wreckage of a Piper Cherokee, registration HB-OYL, which crashed at this location on June 30, 1968. Recovery efforts will begin as soon as possible,” police said in a statement.

On board the plane were a teacher, a doctor and his son, all from Zurich. Their bodies were then found, but not the wreckage of the plane. The wreck is located in difficult-to-access terrain, according to the police, the technical means at the time did not allow searching for the wreck.

A mountain guide came across the plane wreckage, writes the server 24 heures. Due to climate change and melting glaciers, the tourist route has changed and now passes through the place where the plane parts were found.
