One Airplane Lands Safely, But Badly Damaged
A mid-air collision has resulted the fatal injury or four people
in Alaska, as two floatplanes reportedly collided at 1414 local
time about 90 miles northeast of Anchorage near Amber Lake in the
Trapper Creek area.
One of the aircraft, a Cessna 180, went down following the
collision and caught fire after impacting the ground. Alaska
Department of Public Safety said the four people on board that
aircraft were all fatally injured. The other aircraft, reported to
be a Cessna 206, managed to return to Anchorage airport, where it
executed an emergency landing. MSNBC reports that the pilot,
56-year-old Kevin Earp, was alone in the plane and not injured.
There was reportedly substantial damage to the floats of the 206,
caused by making a wheels-up landing on pavement. No other details
of the damage to the 206 were immediately available.
The names of those on board the 180 have not been released.
