Alaska Air Guard rescues 2 plane crash survivors

Posted: Wednesday, July 08, 2009

PALMER - The Alaska Air National Guard has rescued two survivors of a small plane crash northeast of Palmer.

Maj. Guy Hayes says the Air Guard was asked to look for the aircraft Monday night after the Federal Aviation Administration determined it was overdue.

Air Guard crews following the aircraft's flight path north from Palmer picked up an emergency locator beacon signal and then found the downed plane shortly after midnight Monday. A Pave Hawk helicopter landed near the wreckage and found the two occupants of the plane, who were transported to Providence Hospital in Anchorage for treatment early Tuesday. Additional information on those rescued was not immediately available.
