An Anchorage, Alaska, family of four died on Sunday, July 31, when their single-engine plane collided with another small plane 80 miles north of Anchorage.
The crash occurred around Amber Lake near Trapper Creek when two floatplanes collided. One of these planes crashed and burned.
The plane pilot by the 41-year-old pilot who died was a Cessna 180 and the other plane involved was a Cessna 206, which reportedly suffered damage but was able to return to Anchorage.
The pilot, his 39-year-old wife, and their two young children all died in the crash, though the other plane’s 56-year-old pilot was not hurt.
National Transportation Safety Board spokesperson Larry Lewis told the Associated Press that they can’t yet speculate about the cause of the crash but revealed that “the airplane impacted the ground in a steep vertical descent. Most of the airplane was consumed by a post-crash fire."
Sunday’s crash was similar to another crash that occurred in Anchorage earlier in July when a Piper Navajo and a Cessna 206 collided mid-air but managed to land with all 13 passengers uninjured.
The Associated Press reports that “in a vast state with a very limited road system, traveling by small plane is a common activity for many residents.”
Because Alaskans use planes to get around so frequently, do you think aviation laws and required training there should be more rigorous?
