From the PR Newspaper, El Vocero (rough translation):
ANCHORAGE, Alaska, EE.UU. – A fleet of six airplanes and two helicopters started a search on Sunday of a small hydroplane with four people on board, amongst them three park forest employees, that disappeared by the southeast of Alaska in the midst of bad weather.
The search of the aircraft, called Dehavilland Beaver was focused on a rocky coastal terrain between Swikshak Lake and Katmai National Park, and the destination was to King Salmon, 460 kilometers (285 miles) to the southwest of Anchorage.
There has been no radio communication nor an emergency broadcast of its location, said Ralph Moore, who had hopes that the hydroplane could have landed on a cove and await better weather conditions. The aircraft was reported missing after it did not reach King Salmon, according to the Alaskan Coast Guard.
Alaska has experienced several airplane accidents from the beginning of June, amongst them one on August 9, in which the ex-senator Ted Stevens passed away. Other recent accidents, as in Denali National Park Elmendorf Air Force Base in the middle of Alaska and in the commercial district near the center of Anchorage.
Seventeen people have died so far related to plane crashes in Alaska from June.

There’s only one way the tragic airplane crash in Alaska that ended the life of former-U.S. Senator Ted Stevens could have been better, according to New Hampshire Democratic activist and State Rep. candidate Keith Halloran: If Sarah Palin had been on it.
In a Facebook post, Halloran, who describes himself as “an active local citizen and supporter of NH Governor John Lynch,” said of the plane crash, “Just wish Sarah and Levy were on board.”
Wow. Just wow. Talk about hope and change. Democrat machine at its best, with tolerance on dissenting views-so dissenting, so different, they’d rather see a Republican die in a plane crash. If this comment came out of a mouth of a teenager, it’d still deserve a serious scolding; but a Democrat activist and a candidate?
And you expect to win, HOW? Mr. Halloran served on the Rindge, NH planning board and is currently running as a Democrat for State Representative in Cheshire County House District 7.
VOTE AGAINST HIM!
From The Examiner:
Although the vile post quickly disappeared, it has been confirmed by Bettencourt that the post did appear on Bettencourt’s Facebook page in response to an original Bettencourt post reminding folks who couldn’t say anything nice, perhaps they should remain silent about the tragic plane crash and resulting death of Alaska Senator Ted Stevens.
First the appropriate positive comments appeared and then up pops this death wish for Sarah Palin and Levi Johnston, “Just wish Sarah and Levy were on board,”, by Keith Halloran. Halloran refuses to confirm he wrote the message, though Associated Press reports he responded to them through Facebook, “It’s just a tempest in their Tea Pot.”
Of course, dozens of people in the political field have denounced this comment and have called on Halloran to call the Palins and apologize for what he wrote. I hope he does reconsiders his *wishes* on other political candidates, figures or any current government appointee. Some believe in karma, some don’t. But nothing good will come out of this fellow’s head to serve his country in a righteous way.
