    That's a heartbreak, but I wonder why it only went 1.5 miles.

    I was kind of thinking the opposite. 1.5 miles seems like a long ways. It must have been a good flyer. I’m not sure mine would fly 300’ without it coming back at me like a boomerang

    Anyone have any news on a C182 that had an emergency landing on a glacier in SE Ak yesterday? Sars was having difficulty getting to them

    Update. All good, I guess they got picked up and are ok

    I see no issue with the Cub flying a mile or two, but why did it spin in?

    Haven’t seen anything about that. Not a lot of 182’s here, comparatively speaking. Wonder if local or transient. Glad to hear all are well for sure.

    They left from Utica NY last Friday and got to Anchorage by Tuesday. We're heading to Kodiac last I texted them last Wednesday. Then heading to Valdez. Heard they got forced to land on Kenai glacier from structural ice? Both were hypotheric by time they got picked up.

    Dang. I’d say they are super lucky. Always like an ending when everyone goes home whole.

    Little blue J3. Sounds like they might have been forced down with mechanical issues and set down there. With how soft/marshy the ground is in a lot of places in southcentral Alaska I always imagined it would end up like that if the engine ever stopped.

    I’ve been to similar accidents scenes where pilots had to make emergency landing in the marsh. A Cherokee and a 170 Both had a similar short field landings with a nose over at the end but everybody walked away from the airplane.
