The west end of the runway at Juneau International Airport was closed for nearly an hour Thursday afternoon, after a small single-engine aircraft crashed while landing.
The privately owned Cessna 150 apparently ended up on its side and sustained significant damage.
Airport Deputy Manager Patti deLaBreue says the pilot and a passenger walked away. No names have been released.
She says the accident is under investigation by the Federal Aviation Administration’s Flight Standards Office and the National Transportation Safety Board.
She says the runway was wet but not icy at the time of the crash.
