King Salmon Plane Crash, 1985

March 22, 2009

I was stationed at King Salmon AFS, in Alaska,  in 1985 when an (then) unknown aircraft crashed on approach. The details were quickly hushed up and rumors were whispered about since there was a lack of facts to discuss.

I’ve done a few searches and found nothing about it, until today. According to Aviation Safety Network, the aircraft was a C-47B, flying from Homer to King Salmon. It was owned by Northern Peninsula Fisheries.

I find it odd that something like this was hushed up. Does anyone else know more information about this?
