That's the second fatal mid-air collision between a De Havilland Canada DHC-2 Beaver and another aircraft this month.


Anon believes there are serious deficiencies with visibility from the cockpit in these aircraft and that is likely the cause. The Beaver pilots did not see the other plane.

Something is wrong with this picture. Where is the fire damage?

Rita Geller, who works at a golf course near the airport, said she started running when she heard the planes hit, and watched one fall to the ground,

I ran to more of a clearing and basically saw it explode,

she told the Anchorage Daily News. “The engine, things were flying off of it. I didn’t see the second plane, but I saw a lot of debris flying around. It was horrific. It was just like 9/11.”
