MOUNT HOLLY, N.J. — Remains of an eastern Pennsylvania soldier who died 66 years ago in a plane crash in the French-Italian Alps during World War II are being returned to New Jersey for burial.


The Burlington County Times reported that services for Staff Sgt. Zoltan Dobovich of Allentown are to be held Wednesday and Thursday at the Perinchief Chapels in Mount Holly, N.J.


The POW/MIA Awareness Committee of New Jersey says Dobovich was one of eight soldiers killed when their B-17 Flying Fortress bomber went down on Nov. 1, 1946 while flying from Naples to England. The wreckage was found in 1947 at 12,000 feet on the Estellette Glacier but individual remains couldn't be identified.
