    This image provided by the Alaska State Troopers shows the wreckage of the amphibious plane carrying former Sen. Ted Stevens which crashed into a remote mountainside during a fishing trip, killing the state's most beloved political figure and four others and stranding the survivors on a rocky, brush-covered slope overnight. Three teenagers and their parents, including the former head of NASA, were on the plane when it plowed into the mountain Monday afternoon Aug. 9, 2010 with so much force that it left a 300-foot gash on the slope, federal investigators said. The photos were taken as a trooper flew overhead in a state helicopter when weather allowed Alaska State Troopers to get near the scene.

    Alaska Senators Gravel & Stevens

    Alaska had only two senators in the 1970's in Mike Gravel (left) and Ted Stevens. Since Gravel took office 10 days after Stevens, Stevens was Alaska's senior senator for all but 10 days of his forty-year tenure in the Senate.

    Ted Stevens in Court

    On July 29, 2008 Stevens was indicted by a federal grand jury on seven counts of failing to properly report gifts and found guilty at trial three months later. The charges relate to renovations to his home and alleged gifts claimed to be worth more than $250,000. But on April 7, 2009, federal judge Emmet G. Sullivan set aside the verdict and threw out the indictment based on what he called the worst case of prosecutorial misconduct he'd ever seen.
