ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — The bodies of two more people have been found after small sightseeing planes collided in Alaska.
The Coast Guard and the Ketchikan Volunteer Rescue Squad found the two bodies near the crash site of the smaller plane involved in the collision, a single-engine de Havilland DHC-2 Beaver.
A total of six people died in the collision Monday afternoon near Ketchikan. Ten people, all Americans, were injured. The two missing passengers were from Canada and Australia.
The cause of the crash in relatively good weather, high overcast skies with light southeast winds was not known. The crash occurred about 8 miles from Ketchikan, near George Inlet. The planes came down about a mile and a half apart with some of the debris field on land.
