The remains of 10 American airmen, missing in action since a World War II mission over New Guinea, have been identified and will be returned to their families for burial, the Pentagon said. A B-24 Liberator with the airmen was returning to the aerodrome at Nadzab, New Guinea, after bombing enemy targets near Hollandia on April 16, 1944. The aircraft altered course because of bad weather when it disappeared. A team surveyed the site in 2002 and recovered remains as well as identification tags and other objects. Scientists used dental records, DNA and other tools to identify the remains.
