No Injuries from Crash at Talkeetna Airport

by Phillip Manning ~ June 30th, 2014

On Saturday, a plane crash at the Talkeetna Airport resulted in no reported injuries.  In the early afternoon, the Alaska State Troopers say that they received a report of a crashed plane.  Upon arrival, troopers found that pilot Peter Askeland and passenger Merle Askeland, both of Eagle River, were uninjured.  Askeland told troopers that the plane’s landing gear collapsed on landing, causing it to go off the runway.  The Askelands are the registered owners of a 1947 North American Navion, a plane used by the U.S. military from the 1940s through the 1960s.
