A military plane crash found near Knik Glacier earlier this month has been identified as a Korean War-era Air Force cargo plane that killed all 52 people on board and was buried by heavy snow shortly after it went down, bringing closure to victims' families after nearly 60 years. Army Capt. Jamie Dobson with the Joint POW-MIA Accounting Command says the wreckage -- discovered on Colony Glacier June 10 by a UH-60 Blackhawk crew with the Alaska Army National Guard -- is that of a Douglas C-124A Globemaster II that crashed in the area on Nov. 22, 1952.

The Air Force believes that it's solved the years-long mystery of why F-22 pilots have suffered potentially dangerous, hypoxia-like symptoms aboard the world's most advanced jet fighter. And the answer is so insanely simple, some Congressmen don't believe it. It's primarily clothing! According to Congressional Testimony by NASA and Air Force experts earlier this month, the problem lies with an inflatable combat vest that was worn -- in combination with rubberized cold-weather survival gear needed for ejection by pilots over cold water.

In the last 10 years, Alaska’s Hispanic population has jumped by 51.8 percent, making it the fastest growing minority group in the state. Daniel Esparza, who grew up in Zacatecas, Mexico is in a good position to consider the long view: He’s a Mexican-American who has lived in Alaska for 37 years. To him, it’s obvious what’s drawing people to the Northernmost U.S. state: “It’s adventure and opportunity,” he said. The highlights of the Census data released this week included: -Alaska's Hispanic population was 25,852 in the 2000 Census to 39,249 in the 2010 Census - The number of people who identified themselves as being of Mexican descent jumped from roughly 13,300 to 21,600 - People who identify themselves as Mexican make up 55 percent of Alaska’s whole Hispanic population, followed by  Puerto Rican and Cuban -While Hispanics now make up 5.5 percent of Alaska’s population in 2010, that’s still much less than the 16.3 percent they make up of the entire U.S. population.
