GROVE TWP. – It was a bittersweet day Saturday as family members, friends, dignitaries and military members paid their respects to U.S. Air Force First Lieutenant William "Bill" Turner.
Turner, who grew up in Cameron and Potter counties, died Nov. 22, 1952 at just 24 years old when the C-124 Globemaster plane that he was traveling in crashed into Mount Gannet in the Chugach Mountains of Alaska.
Severe weather at the time prevented any search from being executed until three days after the crash; aircraft and seas vessels searched for three days before plane wreckage was found Nov. 28, 1952.
