Capital City Fire and Rescue says a small aircraft crashed at the Juneau Airport on Tuesday evening.
The Piper Super Cub crashed at the north side of the runway about 8:15 p.m.
The aircraft was reported upright when firefighters arrived, but sustained significant damage to the left wing and left landing gear.
The two people on board did not report any injuries and declined medical treatment.
Firefighters say there was no fire and no fuel spilled.
Few details are available about the incident and it’s unclear if the runway was closed during the response.
The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating the incident.
