TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – The remains of a local hero finally came home Thursday after he died in a plane crash in 1952. 

Family members of Airman Isaac Anderson Sr., tell News Channel 8 he disappeared after a military plane crash in Alaska.  In 2012, his remains were found on a mountainside.

“I’m just glad it’s happening. I’m glad it’s over,” his son, Isaac Anderson Jr., said.

Family members joined Air Force members and watched as American Airlines flight 809 arrived in Tampa to a fire truck water salute. It pulled up to the gate around 1 p.m.

Anderson was born in Brewster but later moved to Tampa where he eventually met his wife, Dorothy Anderson, who has since passed away. The two had one son together. 

Anderson’s granddaughter, Tonja Anderson-Dell, said her grandfather joined the U.S. Air Force because he wanted to provide for his family.

On Nov. 22, 1952, Anderson and 51 other American soldiers were headed for Anchorage on a C-124 Globemaster II. But the plane slammed into Mount Gannett in Alaska, killing all 52 people aboard.
