Police respond to plane mishap at airport

No one injured in minor incident

Members of the Homer Police department responded to a minor accident involving a plane at the Homer Airport on Friday night, in which no one was harmed.

Lt. Ryan Browning said police got a call at 9:18 p.m. about a small plane having crashed on at the airport. It was reported to have crashed at 8:33 p.m.

Upon arrival, Browning said the pilot of the aircraft reported having issues during landing, and that the plane had started to pull to the left. It then continued off the runway, Browning said.

The plane’s tail was broken off and Browning said it appeared one of the wings was also broken, but neither the pilot nor his passenger were hurt.

Alaska State Troopers responded to the airport along with the Homer Police Department, and Browning said the Homer Airport Manager took over once he arrived.
