In May 1961, the Sno-Freighter was being prepared for its final rescue. It had been sitting for nearly five years in a valley without the ability to move. It’s engine’s were inoperable and the wiring in the control car were destroyed after it jackknifed and caught fire during a DEW Line resupply mission. However, the crew assigned to bring it back to civilization successfully negotiated its freedom. The Sno-Freighter was unable to recover from the fire that night. But, there is more than one Monster in the Yukon.
