JUNEAU EMPIRE STAFF REPORT

Alaska State Troopers have identified the two survivors of a plane crash south of Ketchikan Tuesday.

They are pilot Ernest Robb, 64, of Ketchikan and Murray Richardson, 56, of Vancouver.

Robb is one of the co-owners of Southeast Aviation, which is an airplane charter flightseeing company based out of Ketchikan that owned the plane that crashed, according to a company employee.

A Trooper dispatch Wednesday stated both sustained moderate non-life threatening injuries and were taken to Ketchikan Peace Health Medical Center by Guardian Flight services and were later airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. They were in intensive care at the hospital as of 7 p.m. Wednesday
