ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — The Federal Aviation Administration said two small airplanes collided in mid-air near Soldotna Friday morning.
It was not immediately known how many people were on board the two planes or their conditions.
Wreckage after the collision at 8:30 a.m. came down near the Sterling Highway and briefly closed the highway.
The FAA said the planes involved were a single-engine de Havilland DHC-2 Beaver and a twin-engine Piper Aztec.
The collision occurred about 2 miles northeast of the Soldotna Airport.
Two federal investigators were dispatched to the scene shortly after the crash.
