In this Jan. 7, 2014 photo, Gary Finzel displays how he discovered Air Force Maj. Robert Lee Payne, who died in a 1964 B-52 bomber crash, in Grantsville, Md. Finzel was a part of the search party for the crashed B-52 bomber, and 50 years later, residents of far western Maryland are recalling the deadly crash. Three of the five crew members died in the storm-driven accident on Jan. 13, 1964. Local volunteers like Finzel helped government workers recover the bodies and two unarmed nuclear bombs from the snow-covered scene. (AP Photo/Andrew Ferguson)
