  • After multiple search and rescue missions to save thrillseekers from the Alaskan wilderness over the years, the state National Guard removed a 1940s bus, featured in the 2007 film ‘Into the Wild,’ using a Chinook helicopter.

    In a joint mission between the Department of Natural Resources and the National Guard, soldiers flew to the remote location 25 miles west of the Parks Highway on Stampede Trail on Thursday, retrieving the world-famous vehicle known to some as “Bus 142,” or the “Magic Bus.” The vehicle was reportedly hauled to the trail about 60 years ago by a road crew.
