Crews Search For Missing Palmer Pilot

By | October 16, 2012

A search is underway for a missing plane. Palmer pilot Brendan Mattingly was last seen in at an airport in Soldotna on Saturday. Alaska State Troopers say Mattingly and his red, white and green Piper PA-19 Super Cub have not been seen since.

Searchers from the Troopers, the Alaska Air National Guard and several civil air patrol groups are looking for the plane in an area between Soldotna and an airport near Palmer where Mattingley was thought to be heading, but icy conditions and low ceiling have hampered the effort.
