I5y r.UJI, COKCOKA.V l.'nited I'rcxs Stuff Correspondent GRAND CANYON VILLAGE, Ariz. -..(UP)—- A helicopter rescue team descended into a death-filled gorge of the Grand Canyon of the Colorado River today to retrieve- remains of the bodies of 12S victims ot the world's worst commercial plane disaster. The plane carried acting coroner Shelby McCanlcy, who said he would remain at the site until all bodies are removed. Departure was delayed because of mechanical trouble and a second helicopter conta,lning photographers and a pool reporter was to leave later. Four cargo helicopters stood by at Winslow, Ariz., to drop into the treacherous canyon to assist in removal ,°i" the bodies when clearance was given for the landing by the first plane. The group planned io attempt removal of the 70 bodies from 'the wreckage of a Trans- World Airlines passenger plane which apparently collided with a UATj plane Saturday. The fiS bodies in the UAL wreckage perched on a. sheer cliff a mile awav possibly ncver.will be recovered. Government officials launched an investigation into Ihe crash to determine for sure whether tho two planes collided in mid - air in the nation's first collision of two airliners and then dropped into the huge, rocky gii^h In the Painted Desert. They siikTTiiere was only a "one-in-tcn-millinn" chance thai the two super-airliners met wiih separate mishaps at the same instant and fell into the gorge. Investigators, piecing together all the information available-, tbe- ori'/.ed that the TWA plane, climbing to get out of a storm, flew right Into tho belly of the UAL plane and both plunged almost straight dott7i and burned. None of Ihe 12S persons in either plane bad a chance. Hal Wood, United Press staff eon-espondent who flew over the scene Sunday, said 'T flew down to within a few feet of the place where the two planes crashed anil Ihc biggest piece of wreckage I saw was a wheel." He said the canyon's tricky air currents "tossed our little Cessna 100 plane around like a straw in a tornado." The wreckage of the TWA plane was spotted Saturday after an anxious daylong search and the shattered remains of the UAL plane were sighted .Sunday morning, only about a mile down the colorful canyon carved by the rushing Colorado River. There was no sign of life around the wreckages and a holicoptor crew which landed in the gorge later Sunday confirmed that all 12R had. died instantly. Officials hoped that treacherous winds would claim no more lives in tho gorge by slamming helicopters against granite cliffs. The helicopter group, according to plans set up by Capt. Byrd Tlyland. commanding the rescue team, will either ferry the bodies to the top of the rim for transfer to other planes or direct to the temporary morgue set up in the national guard armory in Flagstaff, Ariz.
