We first heard about it from a first grade student at the school who yelled to us, "That airplane crashed." We then got a call from a friend with some more detailed information. She said the plane that had just left Brevig had crashed somewhere near Nome and that they couldn't find the plane. The next couple hours were pretty scary as we all hung by the phone for news, fortunately the last phone call of the night was a good one.
Here's the story.
