Birth: Jan. 1, 1915
Kentucky, USA
Death: Dec. 10, 1946
Washington, USA

Captain A. C. Robertson, USMC, was designated Naval Aviator #16403 in 1942. Graduated U.S. Naval Academy, Class of 1937.

Lt. Col. Robertson was the co-pilot of a Curtis R5C Commando transport plane, on a flight from SanDiego to Seattle, which crashed during bad weather on 10 December 1946 into Mount Rainier, killing all 32 U.S. Marines aboard.

His body along with the others who lost their lives on that flight all remain entombed in ice on Mount Rainier.

Recoverly efforts were called off when it was decided that it would be nearly impossible to recover the bodies and the risk for the rescuers was too high.
