Specialist alpine rescuers Sunday recovered the bodies of three people killed when their sightseeing helicopter crashed into a New Zealand glacier, but bad weather delayed efforts to retrieve the corpses of the other four victims.Four British and two Australian tourists, as well as their New Zealand pilot, died when the helicopter plunged into the heavily-crevassed glacier during bad weather Saturday.Continuing rain and low cloud hindered recovery efforts until a break in the weather late Sunday morning allowed helicopters to take the specialist recovery team to the site of the disaster near the top of the glacier.Three bodies were recovered before the weather closed in again and the operation was halted for the day.
