A climber found a trove of gems in the Alps amid a 47-year-old Boeing 707 wreck. He gets to keep half.

The Boeing 707 carrying the gems was one of two Air India flights that crashed into Mont Blanc in the mid-20th century. The first did so in 1950 during a storm, killing all 48 people aboard. Sixteen years later, Air India Flight 101 hit almost exactly the same spot, ejecting the gems.
