Seth Fairbanks, 29, and Anthony Hooper, 23, killed after small-plane crash in waters of Knik Arm near Anchorage, Alaska
“It was Seth and I’m sure it was Seth and I’m sure he called 9-1-1 and said, ‘We’re from McGrath and the plane’s upside down in Cook Inlet and we’re standing on the wings’. I have not heard the recording yet, but that 9-1-1 call went to the Bethel Police Department and they passed it onto the Rescue Coordination Center at Elmendorf,” said Fairbanks.
The after-hours call from a spot between Anchorage and Palmer had been automatically routed to Fairbanks from the troopers' Bethel post. But it shouldn't have gone to Bethel to begin with, according to a municipality of Anchorage technology expert.
A preliminary report on the small plane crash in Knik Arm last week gives no apparent reason the plane went down.
The pilot of the Piper PA-18 Super Cub – 29-year-old Seth Fairbanks — and passenger 23-year-old Anthony Hooper are presumed dead, according to a National Transportation Safety Board report.
The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident as follows:
The loss of engine power for reasons that could not be determined because postaccident examination of the airframe and engine did not reveal any mechanical malfunctions or failures that would have precluded normal operation.
If you spend less time behind the wheel, you spend less money on your insurance. With per-mile insurance, you pay a low monthly base rate plus a few cents per mile when you drive. At the end of the month, your bill is your base rate plus how many miles you drove at your per-mile rate.
Yesterday in Montgomery County, Texas, traffic was disrupted in a residential neighborhood due to a tiger roaming the streets. Upon seeing the news, a random person we can assume is not a wildlife biologist called the local news station, identifying the tiger as a former "pet":
Many of us are too poor to have to own a Tesla Model S, or our rich friends are too electric car-averse, so we'll never know how cool the Teslas's autopilot feature is because we have to settle for borrowed McLarens. Until now!
