Alaska's 'Into the Wild' bus, known as a deadly tourist lure, has been removed by air



The abandoned bus on the Stampede Trail in Alaska -- made famous by the book and later the film "Into the Wild" -- has made its first trip in decades. This time by air.

An Alaska Army National Guard Chinook helicopter airlifted the bus on Thursday afternoon, the Alaska National Guard said.
The decision to remove the bus in coordination with the Department of Natural Resources was made out of concern for public safety, the guard said in a statement. In its current location, near Healy, Alaska, the bus has drawn people into danger of the Alaska wilderness.

It will be secured in an undisclosed location while the department considers all options for its permanent placement.
