Here’s the report from AJC on 06/08/2017: Just before 4 p.m. Thursday, an airplane carrying the remains of World War II veteran 1st Lt. Robert Eugene Oxford pierced the clouded sky above Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport. The Georgia farm boy and guitar picker died at age 24 in a plane crash in 1944 with seven fellow U.S. Army Air Corps members in a remote ravine in the Himalayas.
