Following on the heels of the C-17 crashing that killed four at Elmendorf. And the crash of another plane near Mt. McKinley/Denali that killed a further three. There is now reports that former Sen. Ted Stevens[R-AK] and former NASA administrator Sean O'Keefe were aboard a plane crash in Alaska. It is known that five people have died in the crash, it is not officially know if either Stevens and O'Keefe are among the dead.
My sympathies go out to all the families involved.
