A damaged plane sits along side the float plane pond after crashing at the Juneau International Airport on Sunday. One person was taken to Bartlett Regional Hospital.

A small plane with three people aboard crashed shortly after takeoff from Runway 26 at Juneau International Airport just before 7:30 p.m. Sunday.

The single-engine Maule M-5 came to a stop near the float plane pond. The three occupants were tended to by emergency personnel. There were no injuries, said FAA Northwest Communications and Media Manager Allen Kenitzer.

National Transportation Safety Board investigator Craig Hatch said the NTSB’s Anchorage office will complete an investigation, and called the incident a “simple loss of control” with no mechanical failures claimed by the owner of the plane.

Names of those aboard were not released.
