On December 23, 1993, at 1500 Alaska Standard Time, a wheel-ski equipped Piper PA-18 airplane, N7121P, collided with a tree and crashed during an approach to a frozen lake located about 3 miles southeast of Port Alsworth, Alaska. The non certificated pilot-in-command, the sole occupant, received minor injuries, and the airplane was substantially damaged. The local personal flight, operating under 14 CFR Part 91, departed Port Alsworth at 1430 and the intended destination was the frozen lake. Visual meteorological conditions existed, and no flight plan was filed. Use your browsers 'back' function to return to synopsisReturn to Query Page
In August of 1971, the pilot's application for a medical certificate was denied by the Federal Air Surgeon. The pilot reported that for the past twenty years he had been taking an anti-seizure medication on a daily basis without any recurring problems.
