2 Fairbanks men dead in Nenana River plane crash

Two Fairbanks men were killed in a plane crash. Alaska State Troopers say the 45-year-old Timothy Sonnenberg and 43-year-old Jason Roberts were on hunting trip, when their plane went down south of Gold Creek in the Nenana River area.

The men were reported overdue Friday, and the burned wreckage of the aircraft was spotted Saturday by another pilot.

A helicopter crew dispatched by the Alaska Rescue Coordination Center Sunday to recover the men’s bodies.
