State Troopers have released the name of the pilot killed in a helicopter crash Saturday night near Lake Illiamna. The pilot killed was William Zeman from Douglas, Alaska. The 66-year-old pilot was en route from Nome where he was doing seismic work. Clint Johnson is a National Transportation Safety Board investigator. He says the wreckage of a helicopter belonging to Era Helicopters LLC, was spotted just after noon Sunday.
If the weather cooperates, Johnson says the NTSB will investigate the crash site on Nov. 1. Era Helicopters says the pilot was the only person on board.
