    AK - 9 killed in Alaska sightseeing plane crash, recovery continues

    All nine people aboard an Alaska sightseeing float plane have been confirmed dead after the plane crashed near Ketchikan in southeast Alaska, Thursday. Tour operators Promech Air have released a statement saying there are no survivors although the wreckage hasn't yet been reached.

    The eight passengers were all tourists from a Holland America Line cruise ship, taking a tour of the Misty Fjords.

    Wreckage has been spotted by helicopter on a remote granite cliff face but initial recovery attempts have been hampered by bad weather and rough terrain. The operation continues. Names of victims have not yet been released.
