Unfallbericht:
The crew of a C-47B transport plane became lost over Alaska and failed to arrive at the destination. The wreckage was spotted in the Yukon River valley 72 km southeast of Fort Yukon in July 1952.

According to the FAA civil aircraft register this aircraft was registered as N4776C in 1963 and being sold to Indonesia as PK-JJS in 1975. It's unclear if this aircraft was salvaged and repaired or if this was a clerical error.
