The EATS organized and provided planes, crews and flights in support of troop movment, diplomatic missions and civilian travel in Europe after the end of the war in May of 1945. The officers on this ill-fated flight were assigned to the Headquarters of EATS. The enlisted men were experienced airmen assigned to the 61st TCG. The purpose of this mission is still unknown. The exact route of the flight is still unknown. They may or may not have been together before this flight but they are now joined together for eternity as the wreckage of their aircraft was buried in the glacier and their remains were buried in common ground. images/stories/fordlfair_pic2.jpg Colonel Ford Larimore Fair Command pilot mages/stories/col.jpg Service Number:0-17029 Born in Fort Wayne, Indiana, on July 9, 1898 images/stories/upham2.jpg Upham Hudson Colonel Hudson Hutton Upham Command pilot images/stories/col.jpg Service Number: 0-19467 Born in Washington DC, on December 13, 1912 images/stories/cobb.jpg Maggiore Cobb Major Lawrence Lofton Cobb Co-pilot images/stories/maj.jpg ervice Number: 0-24736 Born in Camp Lee, Virginia, on April 28, 1920 stories/ramirez_pic.jpg 2nd Lt.
