    JUNEAU, Alaska – A plane carrying nine people crashed amid southwest Alaska's remote mountains and lakes, killing five people on board, authorities said Tuesday. Former Sen. Ted Stevens and ex-NASA Administrator Sean O'Keefe were believed to be aboard, but it was unclear if they were among the dead.

    I lived in AK from 1995 til 2007. Have friends in Dillingham and a brother in law that works for Northern Air Cargo. Hoping for the best.

    The pilot was Terry Smith, retired Alaska Airlines pilot. His son-in-law was killed in a plane crash just two weeks ago. Very sad.
