The wreck of a bus in Alaska, made famous by the 1996 book and 2007 movie Into the Wild, was removed from Denali National Park by helicopter on June 18 amid public safety concerns.
The Alaska National Guard said soldiers with the 1st Battalion, 207th Aviation Regiment used a Chinook helicopter to remove the bus. The bus will be stored at a secure site while options are considered for a permanent location, the National Guard said.
The bus was where adventurer Christopher McCandless died of starvation in 1992, and its allure for hikers has put some in danger over the years. Five Italians had to be rescued earlier this year, while a woman drowned crossing to the bus in 2019.
