Watch Alaska's iconic bus being removed. Almost 30 years after hiker Christopher McCandless died in an abandoned 1940s-era bus in the Alaska wilderness, that bus has been airlifted away from its resting place just outside Denali National Park by the Alaska Army National Guard.

The so-called "Magic Bus" had become a dangerous tourist destination deep in Alaska's interior, about 19 miles down the Stampede Trail. McCandless' story became particularly famous after it was told in the book "Into the Wild" and a movie by the same name. (June 2020)
