I know some folks here at .org Have had egnough bad news this last few years, but....it appears another accident has happened. A lot of this is second hand info.
Alaska Central Express departed from King Salmon for Dillingham this morning and did not make it. A beacon has been heard and snowmachines have been sent out to search. The crew reported entering the hold north of DLG or began the approach, that was the last transmission.
Hoping for the best and fearing the worst again in AK. Five accidents in the last week is five too many. the weather has been poor though maybe not a factor in any of the accidents, that is for someone else to determine. Before you go flying STOP any think about what you are doing, really think why you are doing it. This year is already getting to be bad. We had a pretty bad year recently and it is inexcuseable to have another like that. Accidents will happen, but lets aviod the "purposes". I do not mean to preach or insinuate as to the causes of what has recently happened.
