Fog forces flight to land in Ketchikan

Posted: Thursday, September 18, 2008

KETCHIKAN - About 130 passengers and crew were forced to find shelter after fog forced an Alaska Airlines flight to land in Ketchikan instead of Juneau.

Some passengers were able to find hotel rooms Monday night. However, about 50 people had to find other accommodation because they couldn't spend the night at the Ketchikan International Airport.

Those people had to stay with friends, at a church or on cots at the Ted Ferry Civic Center.
