ANCHORAGE (KTUU) - A Pacific Airways de Havilland DHC-2 Beaver crashed just before 10 o'clock this morning with five people on board.
One person was taken to the hospital but with “no reports of injuries, if any,” according to a spokesman for the National Transportation Safety Board.
The plane crashed on landing, according to Clint Johnson, with the NTSB. The Coast Guard put out an urgent marine information broadcast and several Good Samaritan vessels arrived at the scene and delivered the survivors to shore.
The airline said they have “no comment at this time.”
The Coast Guard confirmed that 25 gallons of fuel were on board, but that they did not suspect any pollution, though they would continue to monitor. No cause for the crash has yet been released.
