Swiss JU-52 crashed in Alps.

Wow! Now that is a really old plane,, but I think they continued to make those into the 1950's ?

I have been in Alps skied a lot there... over a 3 year period..
the scenery is wonderful but so treacherous... I know of other bad crashes that have closed down some great attractions because of bad accidents...

that is another train I took through the mountains up to a resort... that are wonderful cable cars like in the scenes of the old James Bond Movies I rode..

in the summer glacier skiing is fun too..

don't look for much powder...
