The bomber came from Hickam Field. Honolulu. Its radio 'reported engine trouble several hours before the plane plummeted to earth 10 feet from the top of the peak. Witnesses said they saw the C- 47 explode in air, and Captain Harold Simer. commanding the Reno, Nov., army air base, said the wreckage indicated a wing, which had not been found, was blown off before the crash. Snow piled as high as 12 feet in drifts. Army workers and volunteers who reached the C-47 wreckage by snowmobile toiled through the night by campfire and flashlight in continuing snow to recover the frozen bodies, some of which were severely mangled. _ The D-29 had been missing since early morning yesterday.
