Georgia company settles with feds over land use

Dec 20, 2013 -- 11:30am
- ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Prosecutors say a Georgia company will pay $55,000 to settle a federal investigation over unauthorized use of public land in Alaska. The U.S. attorney's office in Alaska said the airplane restoration company, B-25 Group LLC of Douglas, Ga., was accused of taking abandoned aircraft parts from a crash site on federal land. The Anchorage Daily News reports the parts were from the 1950 crash of an F-82 Twin Mustang on the Tanana Flats, south of Fairbanks. Prosecutors say salvagers from the Georgia company found the crash site in 2008 and removed some plane parts for use in another restored aircraft. A message left Friday with B-25 Group was not immediately returned. Most of the money will be used for further recovery of the crash site.
