Letters from an airliner that crashed on Mont Blanc 60 years ago have been found and reunited with their recipients.
There were no survivors of the crash which saw the Malabar Princess crash in to the mountains 60 years ago on its way to London, but after decades on the mountainside a mailbag from the plane was finally picked up by a geography student who has vowed to deliver the items of mail to their intended recipients.
It took them three days, but their search proved in vain. There were no survivors from the 40 passengers and eight crew of the Malabar Princess, an Air India Lockheed Constellation bound for a stopover in Geneva on its way to London.
