The Aleutian Pribilof Islands Association (APIA) says mental health and counseling services are available to anyone affected by Thursday's plane crash in Unalaska. Call APIA at 581-2751 or 907-359-2743 to connect with providers and access those services.

Before Thursday night’s plane crash, the PenAir pilot had missed his first attempt at landing flight 3296 in Unalaska. So he circled around for a second try.

A crab boat that sank in the Bering Sea last winter likely capsized after it became coated in hundreds of thousands of pounds of ice.

That's the conclusion of a report released last week by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB).

As KUCB's Laura Kraegel reports, the findings shed new light on the loss of the fishing vessel Destination and its six crew members.

Grant Aviation says it wasn’t a mechanical problem that forced one its planes to belly flop at the Unalaska airport last month.

Beyond that, airline officials are keeping quiet about the accident’s cause -- at least for now.

“We’ve all got our theories," said Rob Kelly, Grant's chief financial officer. "But if we say something and the investigation concludes differently, that’s not a good position for us to be in.”
