More than 50 years ago, body parts that could belong to passengers killed in one or other of two Air India plane crashes, have found on Mont Blanc in the French Also, on Friday sources said.
By air plane accidents, Daniel Roche was fascinated and has spent years combing the Bossons Glacier looking for remains, made the discovery on Thursday.
He told to AFP, "I had never found any significant human remains before." This time however he had found a hand and the upper part of a leg.
On the mountain in 1950 another Air India flight crashed, killing 48 people.
The remains he had found could be of a female passenger from the 1966 Boeing 707 flight, as he also discovered one of the plane's four jet engines said by Roche.
Roche contacted local emergency services in the Chamonix valley who took the remains down the mountain by helicopter and they were due to be examined by experts.
"They are probably from passengers, but between the two aircrafts, it's difficult to say".
Just 10 days ago, two bodies were found lying near each other, preserved in a receding glacier in the Diablerets massif in the Swiss Alps.
