Rescuers are attempting to find a sightseeing plane that crashed with the pilot and four passengers aboard in Alaska's Denali National Park.
Peering through low cloud cover, rescuers aboard a military aircraft on Sunday were attempting to find a sightseeing plane that crashed with the pilot and four passengers aboard a day earlier in Alaska, high on a mountain ridge in Denali National Park and Preserve.
The pilot reported on his satellite phone Saturday that there were injuries, but authorities couldn’t get details before the satellite connection dropped. Some 20 hours after the de Havilland Beaver plane went down around 6 p.m., the plane is believed to have crashed near the summit of 10,900-ft (3,300-m) -high Thunder Mountain, park spokeswoman Katherine Belcher said.
There was still no word on the conditions of the pilot and passengers.
