In Video Vault, we dig back into our archives for some of the most memorable moments that we've shared with you throughout the years. Today we're sharing a timely historic event — one that captured the attention of the whole world. It happened in August 1935, when much-loved humorist Will Rogers and Wiley Post, who was one of the most celebrated pilots at the time, crashed at Point Barrow. Our former colleague John Carpenter headed that way back in 2007 and even got a witness account.
