FAA Reports Mid-Air Collision in Alaska

A Federal Aviation Administration spokesman says two airplanes have collided above Alaska.

The Alaska state patrol says the accident happened Saturday afternoon near Trapper Creek at about 2 p.m. One plane crashed to the ground after the collision, the other was able to land safely.

The plane that landed safely, a Cessna single-engine, returned to the Anchorage International Airport.

FAA spokesman Ian Gregor told The Associated Press no other details were immediately available, including the model or size of the plane that crashed, or how many people were aboard the planes.

Earlier this month, two small planes collided in midair along a narrow and treacherous mountain corridor in Alaska. No one was injured.
