Another Crash!

Thu Oct 11, 2001 9:48 am

DILLINGHAM, Alaska (AP) -- A commuter plane with 10 people aboard crashed shortly after takeoff Wednesday, killing nine people and injuring one, state police said.

The plane, operated by PenAir, Alaska's biggest commuter airline, went down in calm, clear weather en route to King Salmon, a community about 75 miles away, Alaska State Troopers spokesman Greg Wilkinson said.

The cause of the crash was not immediately known. The National Transportation Safety Board planned to send investigators.

The injured passenger was hospitalized. Her condition was not immediately released.

Dillingham is on Bristol Bay, 330 miles southwest of Anchorage

Keep in mine that after 9/11 the media is going to tell you about every incident. Were as befor some might be a text at the bottom of your screen. Just a thought.

That polar bear joke is not in good taste..don't joke about that sort of thing.

We are all on end and especially sensitive to airplane crashes.

I love America. I guess that makes me Bush's poodle, but I'd rather be a dog in New York City than a prince in Riyadh.

Do people EVER check to see whether or not a topic has been discussed already?


Obviously not. Sorry to rant,but this is just my airliners.net pet peeve.

Oh well, at least there aren't 4 different threads like there are for the Delta jet that was diverted to Shreveport.

The Polar Bear Joke WAS funny, in a supressed-laughter kinda way.
