3 uninjured in Juneau small plane crash
JUNEAU (AP) — Three people aboard a small plane were uninjured when it crashed after takeoff at Juneau International Airport.
The Juneau Empire reports the accident happened Sunday evening after the plane, a single-engine Maule M-5, took off from Runway 26 and came to a stop near the float plane pond.
The Federal Aviation Administration reports no injuries to the three people on board. Names weren't released.
Craig Hatch with the National Transportation Safety Board in Anchorage says the agency will investigate. The NTSB tells the Empire that the incident was “simple loss of control,” and no mechanical failures were reported by the plane's owner.
