Plane makes emergency landing on Parks Highway

by Sue Deyoe ~ August 26th, 2010

TRAPPER CREEK – Alaska State Troopers responded to a report of an aircraft emergency landing on the Parks Highway Wednesday afternoon.

The 1956 Piper made an emergency landing near milepost 137 of the Parks Highway around 3:30 in the afternoon.  After the aircraft landed, it struck a road sign, rolled into the southbound ditch and hit the embankment.

The pilot was 43-year-old Kenneth Wasche. He and his passenger were uninjured but the plane sustained $30,000 worth of damage.

Trooper investigation revealed that alcohol was not a factor in the crash.   No other vehicles were reported involved in the landing or crash.  The FAA and National Transportation Safety Board will investigate the accident.
