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.
