Glassy water crash – Craig Medred

A botched landing on glassy water at Halibut Cove led to the crash of a Cessna 206, single-engine aircraft that came within yards of slamming into the “Danny J” ferry last July, according to National Transportation Safety Board documents released today.

The plane was being flown by adventurous Alaska Dispatch News publisher Alice Rogoff, whose description of the landing is included in the NTSB packet.

One more good thing to add to the list: several years’ worth of recorded readings from the series are available for download from the program’s website. It’s got a long but worthwhile URL: Northern Renaissance Arts & Sciences Reading Series. No replacement for the live event, but something those of us who can’t be in two places at once appreciate.

All events from July 9-18, including a 10 Year Anniversary Reception and a reading by Jo Ann Beard on July 15, take place at 8 pm in UAA’s Fine Arts Building Room 150.
