The abandoned Fairbanks bus made famous by the 2007 movie Into the Wild just got airlifted away from its spot on the side of the Teklanika River.
The movie is an adaptation of John Krakaeur’s 1996 novel Into the Wild. The story chronicles real-life adventures of Christopher McCandless. After hitchhiking to Alaska, McCandless stumbled upon the abandoned bus and lived there for about four months before his death. Located on the Stampede Trail, the bus has become a pilgrimage site for fans of the story, but the trek to reach it is treacherous, requiring hikers to ford rivers, and several have died en route.
